The shirt of Nessus is also known as the shirt that killed Hercules

The shirt of Nessus didn't kill Hercules or Heracles (his real name, Hercules is his Roman name) it was poisoned by Heracles' stepmother Hera (her revenge to Zeus for cheating on her) which she gave to Heracles' wife telling her the wearer will be eternally faithful and they would never be able to take it off (this part was not a lie). Once Heracles put it on though it tortured him/causing him great pain so he built himself a funeral pyre and lied down on it just then Zeus came and saved Heracles taking him to mount Olympus to become an Immortal/God

ACCORDING TO THE GREEK MYTHS,Hercules went to the town of Thebes and married Deianira. She bore him many children. Later on in their life, the male centaur, Nessus, abducted Deianira, but Hercules came to her rescue by shooting Nessus with a poison tipped arrow. The dying Nessus told Deianira to keep a portion of his blood to use as a love potion on Hercules if she felt that she was losing him to another woman. A couple of a months later, Deianira thought that another woman was coming between her and her husband, so Deianira washed one of Hercules' shirts in Nessus' blood and gave it to him to wear. Nessus had lied to her, for the blood really acted as a poison and almost killed Hercules. On his funeral pyre, the dying Hercules ascended to Olympus, where he was granted immortality and lived among the gods.

Technically speaking, yes. As he lay mortally wounded by Hercules' arrow, poisoned with hydra venom, Nessus gave Deianira (Hercules' wife) his blood. He told her it was a love potion and advised her to use it on her husband if he ever proved unfaithful to her. One day, Deianira became jealous of her husband and another woman. She dipped a robe in the blood of Nessus and sent it to Hercules, thinking he would fall back in love with her. Instead, the hydra venom in Nessus' blood tortured Hercules. He was in so much pain that he built a funeral pyre and sat on it, begging everyone to light it and end his suffering. Someone eventually did, but that's another story.

Hercules' wife accidentaly kills him. The Centaur Nessus offered to take them across a river that they needed to cross. Nessus tried to kidnap Deianeira (he takes her across first) but Hercules kills shoots him with a poisoned arrow. Before dying, Nessus tells Deianeira to take some of his blood and save it in case Hercules becomes unfaithful (he said the blood would make him fall back in love with her). One day Deianeira gets told rumours about Hercules being unfaithful and makes him wear something (can't remember what) with the blood on it. As the blood is poisoned from the poison that killed the Nessus, Hercules died. Hercules is half God, so he was allowed to go to Mount Olympus and was set as a star (I think) by Zeus.
