note: I know that this can be done with polyglossia, but I am asking about arabxetex specifically.

You would need to put your numbers inside arab environment or inside \textarab command argument:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{arabxetex}
\newfontfamily\arabicfont[Script=Arabic]{Times New Roman}
\begin{document}
\begin{arab}
01234
\end{arab}
or \textarab{01234}
\end{document}
