The Eindhoven side are looking to collect a domestic double, and goals by van Nistelrooy and Adil Ramzi cancelled out an effort from Anthony Lurling to give them the win.
The result could have been different had Marcus Allback scored after just 50 seconds, but he was denied by Ronald Waterreus and Lurling could not score with the follow-up.
Van Nistelrooy opened the scoring shortly before the break when he collected a knock down from Ernest Faber to fire into the corner.
Heerenveen again wasted a chance after the break, with Jeffrey Talan the culprit on this occasion.
Ramzi then capitalised on some fine approach play from van Nistelrooy and Dennis Rommedahl to score on 54 minutes.
Lurling scored on 81 minutes to worry PSV, but van Nistelrooy made the game safe with his second of the match shortly afterwards.
