When a creature with exalted, like Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis, attacks alone does he get +1/+1 or it's only other creatures?

Exalted will trigger for itself if it is attacking alone.
 
Any time you attack with exactly one creature, every Exalted ability on the permanents you control triggers. That includes the attacking creature, if it happens to have Exalted itself.

So if I have 2 creatures with exalted on the battlefield then one of them attacking alone would get 2 +1/+1 counters, right?

Wrong.  Exalted does not grant +1/+1 counters.  Counters give things a "permanant" power and toughness boost.  All exalted does is grant a temporary power and toughness boost.  If you have two creatures with exalted and one attacks alone, that creature will get +2/+2 until end of turn.

No, it would get two +1/+1 bonuses until the end of the turn, for a grand total of +2/+2, but there are no counters involved.
