If you're in bind and cannot make a new nut you can use bone dust and crazy glue to fill the slots, but it will not last very long, especially for the wound strings, which have an abrasive affect on the nut slot as they're tuned up and down.
A better approach is to shim the nut by crazy gluing on some thin, white card stock to the bottom and trimming it flush. Then just re-adjust all the slots down by filing each, one at a time, with the guitar strung up under tension.

Robert: re the glue joint, I think CA should have worked (perhaps fingerprint oil or other contamination?), although I scratched the surfaces & used thin epoxy. It's easy to fool around too much with these sorts of things.
