I own 24mm PC-E and it is the same build and design as this one. In order to tilt AND shift both vertically or both horizontally, you will have to send in your lens to Nikon Service an they can set it for you. That means you will not be able to tilt/shift perpendicular to each other after this.
You can do it yourself by removing 4 screws and rotate the back part of the lens and screw it to the front again. Be careful though.

The aperture on Nikon PC-E lenses including the PC-E Micro Nikkor f/2.8D can only be changed electronically via the CPU contacts in the rear of the lens and at the camera mount.
Nikon extension tubes do not have CPU contacts for the lens to electronically communicate with the camera, and therefore you will not be able to change the 85mm PC-E Micro Nikkor f/2.8D lens aperture using the Sub-command dial or the aperture ring while the extension tube is attached.
