Make a custom fieldType, starting with the TextField type and
specifying the analyzer to use a keyword tokenizer followed by a
lowercase filter.  The do the copyField (as you have done above).
Then actually sort by the title_exact field (your example query shows
you still sorting by "title").

You probably want to use a separate sort parameter:  sort=text_exact desc
