1. Do you mean for completion when entering a symbol value for a
field?  If so, I don't think that has been implemented.

(In fact, it seem that if you try using `M-TAB' in such a
field you get the inappropriate error message "Not in an
editable field", instead of a more appropriate message
telling you that completion is not available in that field.
That seems like a bug in `widget-complete'.)

2. Do you instead mean a way to restrict a field value to be
a symbol that matches a given predicate?  If so, yes, you
can do that using custom type `restricted-sexp'.
