I take it that the Der Red Max nosecone is a spherically blunted tangent ogive nosecone

Does anyone have the values for measurements of it as per the diagram here?

Which one? The single-piece, blow molded one? or the two-piece, injection molded one? The original Citation Red Max used the latter one, then it was changed to the former version later on.

Currently I can't see the image or the follow the link as my VPN is off for a while.

Were they different in shape? I'm asking about the math defining the shape.

Slight difference in length, noticeable difference in weight. The injection molded ones often are also really "snug" when are fitted to body tubes.
