You're sure you're using shell mode and not terminal mode?

This disables zsh's built-in editor, akin to disabling readline in bash. 
Emacs does all the driving in shell mode -- the shell never sees any of 
what you type until you press the comint-send-input key (usually RET).

This will have something to do with your emacs configuration, not zsh.
Offhand I don't know what.  Type C-x C-h c TAB to be sure that your tab
key is still bound to comint-dynamic-complete, and make sure that emacs
knows what the shell's current directory is (M-x dirs RET).
