What's the point? Just smaller rings (44-32-22) ?
Yes, it will fit but it won't "work". Shell width is standard (assuming you don't have a weird bike) — either 68 or 73mm. But MTBs have a larger rear chainline than road bikes. Since the spindle is integral with the crankset with Hollowtech II cranks, you don't have the luxury of selecting the spindle length. XTR crankset is made for 50mm chainline. Road triples use 45mm. That's a big difference in chainline land.
Edit: see below.
