Summary autocomplete

In JIra, as the "Summary" is being filled in, is there a way to auto-fill/autocomplete based on existing issue summaries?

No, you'd need to write code to do that.  

Having summaries autocomplete probably is not a useful idea though - a summary is supposed to be something short and descriptive of a unique issue, not the same thing over and over again.

I disagree - you would want to be guided to use similar or the same summary for similar or the same issues.  This keeps language consistent and allows searches to actually turn up what you're looking for.
