Maybe M-x comint-dynamic-complete-filename RET does what you want?

,----[ C-h f comint-dynamic-complete-filename RET ]
| comint-dynamic-complete-filename is an interactive compiled Lisp function in 
`comint'.
| (comint-dynamic-complete-filename)
| 
| Dynamically complete the filename at point.
| Completes if after a filename.  See `comint-match-partial-filename' and
| `comint-dynamic-complete-as-filename'.
| This function is similar to `comint-replace-by-expanded-filename', except that
| it won't change parts of the filename already entered in the buffer; it just
| adds completion characters to the end of the filename.  A completions listing
| may be shown in a help buffer if completion is ambiguous.
| 
| Completion is dependent on the value of `comint-completion-addsuffix',
| `comint-completion-recexact' and `comint-completion-fignore', and the timing 
of
| completions listing is dependent on the value of `comint-completion-autolist'.
| 
| Returns t if successful.
