If the Mulhorand culture is of egyptian descent. That mean that in country’s like Thay they make pyramids to their leaders? And that tombs or pyramids could helped some of it owners to achieve undeath?

Although other designers introduced Earth-origin Egyptian and Sumerian elements into the Realms, and adventures that featured pyramids were retrofitted into the Realms, I didn’t put any direct real-world analogues into the Realms. There are no pyramids in Thay. 2)
If you want to add some, or a belief system involving mummification and the provision of tomb supplies for the afterlife et al, to your version of the Realms, do so by all means. But none of that is explicitly there in current Realms culture, due to the god-kings.#Realmslore
