This is a task for the Talented Identity Transform,
the stylesheet that transform a document to itself.

By augmenting the identity transformation:

<!-- The Identity Transformation -->
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="";>
  <!-- Whenever you match any node or any attribute -->
  <xsl:template match="node()|@*">
    <!-- Copy the current node -->
      <!-- Including any attributes it has and any child nodes -->
      <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>

with an <xsl:template> that effects elements in
the way that you want, all will be well.

You'll end up with something like this:

<!-- Transform a document to itself, lowercasing all tag names -->
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="";>
  <!-- Import the identity transformation -->
  <xsl:import href="identity.xsl"/>
  <!-- When you match any element -->
  <xsl:template match="*">
    <!-- Create the same element with a lowercase name -->
    <xsl:element name="{translate(name(),'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ',
      <!-- Including any attributes it has and any child nodes -->
      <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>
