There’s no universal MIDI message for octave shift. What, if anything, does the Nord output via MIDI when you use its octave shift buttons?

The MX responds to octave shift sent via a SysEx (System Exclusive) Parameter Change message. If the Nord outputs something when its octave shift buttons are pressed, then you might be able to use a MIDI Event Processor to change that into SysEx the MX can respond to.

Otherwise, you can just manually use the OCTAVE buttons on the MX.
