1º  Event.COMPLETE!= FlexEvent.CREATION_COMPLETE
2º you are already setting the function do dispatch in the creationComplete  in the <mx:Application>
3º Sorry, but, does not make any sense to delay the creationComplete, because only when all the components are created in the screen that you can interact with then...
anyway... You can try this (Remember that you wont delay the creationComplete ;) ):
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute"
	initialize="init()" >

<mx:Script>
	<![CDATA[
		import mx.events.FlexEvent;
		import mx.controls.Alert;
		import mx.rpc.AsyncDispatcher;
		
		private function init():void 
		{
		   setTimeout(timerCompleted, 1000);     
		   addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE,completed,false,0,true);   
		                           
		}
		            
		private function timerCompleted():void
		{
		  dispatchEvent(new Event(Event.COMPLETE));
		}
					
		private function completed(ev:Event):void
		{
		   Alert.show("completed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!");
		}
	]]>
</mx:Script>
</mx:Application>

The following would also work but because of your timeout it is delay about 1 sec:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute"
	initialize="init()" >

<mx:Script>
	<![CDATA[
		import mx.events.FlexEvent;
		import mx.controls.Alert;
		import mx.rpc.AsyncDispatcher;
		
		private function init():void 
		{
		   setTimeout(timerCompleted, 1000);     
		   addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE,completed,false,0,true);   
		                           
		}
		            
		private function timerCompleted():void
		{
		  dispatchEvent(new Event(Event.COMPLETE));
		}
					
		private function completed(ev:Event):void
		{
		   Alert.show("completed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!");
		}
	]]>
</mx:Script>
</mx:Application>

Sorry about that last post andreMariano for copying. I didn't paste the write thing.
   
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute"
				initialize="init()" creationComplete="completed(event)">
	
	<mx:Script>
		<![CDATA[
			import mx.events.FlexEvent;
			import mx.controls.Alert;
			import mx.rpc.AsyncDispatcher;
			
			private function init():void 
			{
				setTimeout(timerCompleted, 1000);				
			}
			
			private function timerCompleted():void
			{
				dispatchEvent(new Event(Event.COMPLETE));
			}
			
			private function completed(ev:Event):void
			{
				Alert.show("completed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!");
			}
		]]>
	</mx:Script>
