You need to set this in your torrc:

AllowDotExit 0|1

    If enabled, we convert "www.google.com.foo.exit" addresses on the
    SocksPort/TransPort/NATDPort into "www.google.com" addresses that
    exit from the node "foo". Disabled by default since attacking
    websites and exit relays can use it to manipulate your path
    selection. (Default: 0)
