Hmm, then it's quite puzzling why cmd.exe refused the path "\\wsl$..."

Does this command, taken from [1], list contents of your Windows files
C:\ directory?
cmd.exe /C dir
(Run the above command in the wsl bash connsole.)

I'm almost running out of ideas. Maybe you should try another instance
of wsl installation, say Ubuntu, to see whether AUCTeX runs as expected
or not. If it fails as well, then emacs running under wsl has something
wrong about starting asynchronous process of windows binary. On the
contrary, if it runs normally, then your current installation of Debian
wsl is somehow corrupted.
