TAU request is a NAS message and it will be piggybacked in RRC connection setup complete message just like other NAS messages are piggybacked in RRC connection setup complete. Once SRB2 is established, NAS message through SRB2 if NAS message is independent from RRC signalling.
MSG3 will be RRC connection Request message.

TAU request can be periodic or event based. This will first require MME to page all eNBs serving the tracking area and the UE which is paged shall trigger a service request requiring establishment of rrcConnection again which implies it should be rrcConnectionRequest as MSG3 after successful RACH procedure.
