Did Chi-i or tendai tradition recite NMHRK or lotus sutra title? I guess that Nichiren said that it was a kind of practice.

Sort of.

NMRK can be found in various texts as one of among other invocations. It was not made a central practice as you find in the Nichiren teachings.
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

-Lotus Sutra, Expedient Means Chapter

There are beings with little dust in their eyes who are falling away because they do not hear the Dhamma. There will be those who will understand the Dhamma.
