No, ispell (the program) is not used for completion.  Instead, you
will see that ispell.el invokes the program that is the value of
ispell-grep-command directly, as this backtrace you posted clearly
shows:

  ispell-call-process("egrep" nil t nil "-i" "^blu.*$" "/usr/dict/words")

(`ispell-call-process' is a simple wrapper for call-process-region, it
does NOT invoke ispell the program.)
