I have found a useable solution for my needs, but it looks like there is a
bug in either or both ipxe.efi and grubnetx64.efi.signed .

What doesn't work as expected:

# Chain load ipxe, then grubnetx64.efi
# doesn't work. grub doesn't request any files from tftp, like boot/grub.cfg

If your goal is to boot to an installer, you can do that directly from ipxe with no need for grub. It's faster too, as ipxe can pull in the kernel and initrd using http rather than tftp.

echo Starting Ubuntu x64 installer
set base-url
kernel ${base-url}/linux
initrd ${base-url}/initrd.gz
imgargs linux boot=http priority=low initrd=initrd.gz
