Is it possible to add effects such as reverb and delay etc to midi tracks? The option always seems to be greyed out.

Having now read the manual, I’m assuming it’s not possible to add effects to a midi track?
I’m referring to a MIDI track with an external synth connected to it (eg; Prophet 6). I know I can route the audio and get effects that way. I was just hoping I’d be able to achieve the same on the MIDI track.

A MIDI track contains nothing but MIDI information, there's nothing to add reverb to. The audio emanates from your Prophet 6, so any FX have to be applied to that audio signal. To do that in the MPC you could connect the audio output of your Prophet into an audio input of your MPC and then route this to an MPC audio track. You can then apply FX to the audio track.

Adding audio effects to MIDI tracks makes no sense from a technical perspective, so either Logic has "MIDI effects" that affect the sequence itself and not the audio, or you're talking about something you obviously completely misunderstand in Logic, thus your question sounds preposterous.
