As far as I know it is not currently possible to get property
auto-completion from the property list of the file itself.

but you could still make use of the stock property in the template and 
from there

For instance:

("T" "TEST" entry (file+headline"/tmp/test.org" "drill")
        "** TEST  \n :PROPERTIES:\n :Effort: 
%^{prompt|0:10|0:20|0:30|1:00|2:00|3:00}\n :END: \n %^{PROMPT} " )

see the rest of the thread for more details 

Would  there be a way to for the capture template to read this info in the 
future? For
instance to read the column format for the entire file like
