I think this is for a Base Form. I'm doing this using Writer.
Further research is in my future.

Look at a form-field. Right click on the field > Control properties >
Font. There is one button "Features". No possibility to set the whole
content to uppercase. Only to set "Lowercase to Small Capitals".
This is the behaviour in Writer- and Base-forms.
If you export forms to a *.pdf-form most of this "features" won't be
exported. Also Scribus, which would export more features to a
*.pdf-form, doesn't give a possibility to set the content ot uppercase.

As others have said, there is no default control that allows you to do
this in Writer and have it function in an exported PDF form.
One suggestion might be to see whether you can embed a JS script in your
PDF form for that control that does this for you, see for example, this
