I don't know the answer to that specific question, but I believe
you're asking the /wrong/ question :-)

Nginx doesn't execute your PHP, it just passes the requests to another
process. Your PHP apps will be executing in the context of this
different process (such as php-fpm) and it is /that/ process which you
need to inform about an outbound HTTP proxy. The specifics of how you
do that will depend on which process you've chosen to contain your
PHP, and the way in which your PHP makes outbound HTTP calls.

HTH,
Jonathan
