When running a program that outputs utf-8 characters such as u-umlaut,
in a terminal window I'll see the actual character, but in an emacs
sub-shell I'm seeing the octal form (which looks like: \374).

No, you're not running such a programme! The LATIN SMALL LETTER U WITH DIAERESIS, ü, is encoded in UTF-8 as C3BC. In UTF-16 it is 00FC – exactly two bytes! Obviously your programme just outputs some ISO Latin dialect or such...
