There doesn't seems to be an out of box support for xls files. Although you can use something custom for parsing xls files.

Currently NiFi does not support XLS as a format, but there has been a community contribution to add a ConvertExcelToCSV processor under NIFI-2613.

Just to clarify https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NIFI-2613 currently only supports XSSF (.xlsx) based Excel documents. I do plan to add support for HSSF (.xls) in the near future.
