I have aliases defined on my .zshrc file that I commonly use when I am on a gnome-terminal. However, when I am on M-x shell on Emacs, the autocompletion does not find them (even though they still work).

Is this a limitation of the Emacs subshell? Are there any known workarounds to this problem?

That mode does not provide a fully functional terminal to the subshell. Use M-x ansi-term instead.
