can this bar end mounted shifer be used
with cabling it to a conventional xtr shifter i.e. can
i attach it straight to the rear mech and simply shift up and down
as normal ?

Nope. The remote shifter pulls the paddles of the normal shifter. It
doesn't contain any springs, a ratchet, or any means of anchoring a normal
gear cable. It's simply a remote means of operating the paddles of the
master shifter.
