Could an inexpensive $15 dollar lens mount adapter damage my XE1 or my nikon lenses?

If not I'm ready to hit the purchase button at Amazon

Thanks!

I don't think is will hurt anything, but it may or may not fit as well as a more expensive mount.  I have a cheap Nikon to Fuji mount from Rainbow Imaging, and there is noticeable play between the lens/mount/body.  I also have a high quality (and expensive) Rayqual Leica to Fuji adapter.  It obviously has a much higher fit and finish and has no play what-so-ever.

That said, the cheap mount still works, but the lens will turn ever so slightly whenever I go to focus.  It's kind of annoying and if I really used it that much, I would replace it with a better one.
