Unfortunately, I did a quick look at the nmh code to see
what it may take to add TLS support using OpenSSL.  It
did not look it would be a trivial task.  May require a
considerable rewriting and/or reorganization of code.

I'd need to do more research to see if the task can
be done simplier, but have not had the time.  One
possible alternative approach is to write a small proxy
server to bridge nmh with an SMTP/TLS MTS.  I
was hoping someone may have written such a beast,
but I could not find anything when I searched for one
some time back.

As for testing, Gmail provides free SMTP/TLS service
for those with a gmail account, so setting up a
up a server is not required.
