Can I access the system dictionary from within a Widget and add new custom entries. This way I could use the autocomplete features with my own data.
How would you go about it?
PS: Also, what's the difference between auto-complete, type-ahead, and multi-tap?

It is "possible" to be able to write your own extensions to any Java API available on the BlackBerry and make it available to your widget. This would allow you to accomplish what you are looking for.
We will be having a session on how to do exactly this at the BlackBerry Developer Conference coming up next week. We will likely also try and publish a tutorial after the conference as well showing how this can be accomplished.
Your suggestion is a good idea for a new Widget API, so I will put it on our list of new API's to deliver.
