I am mass moving a bunch of users and wondering if there is a way I can tweak this command to email me once the job finishes moving the mailboxes on exchange.

Sending the mail isn't difficult (pointer: Send-MailMessage), but waiting for the asynchronous move requests to finish is. We have to wait until there is no further task queued or in progress.
Import-CSV "c:\temp\massmoves3.csv" | foreach {
  New-MoveRequest -Identity $_.displayname -TargetDatabase $_.database
}
while ((Get-MoveRequest -MoveStatus Queued) -or (Get-MoveRequest -MoveStatus InProgress))
{
   start-sleep 15  # seconds
}
Send-MailMessage -SmtpServer mx.MyCompany.Com -From Me@MyCompany.Com -To Me@Mycompany.Com -Subject 'Finished Mailbox Move Requests'
