Installing mupdf should have created a desktop file in /usr/share/applications with an entry NoDisplay=true.  Use a root-editor to change that line to NoDisplay=false

Items in a Linux dynamical menu generally reflect the applications that have associated desktop files somewhere else in your system.  The two primary directories for desktop files are /usr/share/applications and /usr/local/share/applications.  To get ms-office-online-apps in you rmenu, you will have to create desktop files for each app in either of these directories.  For help doing this, see http://lxlinux.com/#6.

Mupdf appears to only be able to read files, which is the reason it is installed with "NoDisplay=true".   It is only used when you right click on a pdf and choose "Open With Mupdf".   For pdf tools that do other things as well, see http://lxlinux.com/pdf.html.
