Some national chess federations award the "National Master" title (NM). National chess federations are free to set whatever standards they want for such titles, which are not recognized by FIDE.

so in the USA, an NM title awarded to any player that his rating is above 2200
in Israel, an NM title awarded to any player that his rating is above 2070
In Ukraine, an NM title awarded to any player that his rating is above 2200

My question is:
does lichess accept non-USA National Master Titles?

Yes, but I dont know the exact criteria to get your title recognized on lichess.

Here are some sample profiles from NM and WNM players which are (I think) not from the US.
