Is that really possible for such a simple thing?;-)

Ok, here it is:

  emacs -Q
  Paste to *scratch* this code:

      (defcustom my-dir nil
          "doc"
         :type 'directory)

  Eval it.
  M-x customize-option RET my-dir RET

  Place point in the directory value field and erase "nil" that is there.
  Now in the empty directory value field press ESC-TAB (or do M-x
widget-complete).

This fails for me with the message I gave before:

>   complete-symbol: No completions available; use M-x visit-tags-table
> or M-x semantic-mode

  Write for example "c:/" in the field and try again. It fails the same way.
