Is there any sort of consensus on this topic? What are the relative power levels of the various commanders available? I kind of want to build one deck per tier/level so I am always on roughly the same page as my fellow players.

I don't know how much of a consensus there is on it, but I found this list through a quick google search.

http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/list-multiplayer-edh-generals-by-tier/

Keep in mind though, that everything is meta dependent to a certain extent.
Also, even if you are running a general/commander that's listed as tier 1, remember that the rest of the deck has to be built to make that commander as powerful as possible. You can take Zur the Enchanter make him fairly mediocre. Or maybe there isn't a good example of the general you've built up there yet and they prove more powerful than first blush may indicate.
Even further more, this list appears to only/mostly pull from tappedout.net so it's far from a definitive source of every deck ever even posted online.

That's... not really the same thing. That's tier categories for each commander assuming you try to make it as degenerate as possible, but even Phage can trounce a lot of tables by just playing it as an Ad Nauseam storm deck full of tutors and cheap mana while fully ignoring your commander.

I'm not entirely sure on the specific tiers of play, nor what to name them really, but I think they're somewhere around:
"I'm trying really hard to win"
"I have all the cards I want for my deck, I just don't think cEDH is any fun"
"I'm trying out something a bit janky today"
"I have a precon"
"I just started playing and my deck is full of draft chaff"
