mrtg is not a shell script, its a perl script.  So, you dont call it with 'sh -x', you call it with 'perl'.  Otherwise you get error messages as the shell interpreter gets confused by the perl code.

You can increase the logging in MRTG, but the error appears to be in the rateup call rather than in MRTG.  You need to capture the stdout/stderr from the mrtg call so that you see any error messages produced by rateup calls, this might give more light on the reason for the rateup error exit.
