No it doesn't.

I actually thought it did but having tested this out on Pokémon Showdown I found out that it's only Bug, Dark and Ghost attacking moves that activate Rattled.

no

although the description says hit by a move

Rattled raises the user's Speed stat one stage when hit by a Bug-, Dark-, or Ghost-type move.

it have to be an attack, so bulbapedia has just wrong information.

here is the replay/ source
