Q - question

How to set both upper and lower dimension tolerances as negative (or positive).

A - answer The tolerances displayed in the AutoCAD dimension text are by default set as lower-negative and upper-positive. But if you need to set tolerance limits both as negative or both as positive, you can enter their values with the minus sign (as differences).

Enter the value of either tolerance as negative.

Don't forget that the lower, negatively entered tolerance, may become the upper tolerance.
