The EOS switch will not source the telnet from the IP of the interface on the created VRF because that VRF cannot be managed, by design.  
Take a trace to determine from which IP the EOS switch is sourcing the telnet, and configure a static route on the XOS switch pointing to that subnet with the EOS switch created VRF IP local to the XOS switch as the next hop.
