Do you mean "searchable as a field in the search function" or "searchable as I type because I've got way too many option entries to be useful in the field"

just searchable when typing in the dropdown box of the single list

The standard answer would be that you'll need to find or write a new custom-field type that implements code that provides your search.

However, some people have had some success using javascript that changes the way a select list works so that it uses the same system as components or labels, which do have a form of search.  I can't find a recent working example though.
