In brief: Gently, if at all
People who truly have narcissistic personality disorder are exquisitely sensitive to criticism. This would make it very difficult for him to hear your comments without attacking you verbally or otherwise rejecting you.
If there are specific issues in your relationship, it might help to use these as entry to couple's counseling -- & go from there. This is how most such people begin getting help.

In brief: Narcissism
The short answer to this, is the person has to want to help.
You cannot force them to seek therapy, counseling, or much of anything else unless they want it. Much harder question to address is why does the person who is not narcissistic stay with the narcissist?
