What plugin is being used that gives Sublime Text the autocomplete feature (for example, when Guil types "<div>" and the closing tag is automatically generated)?

He is probably using Emmet: https://github.com/sergeche/emmet-sublime#readme, and it does a lot more than that :)

I believe that is default Sublime text, assuming you are working in an HTML or PHP file or that you are viewing your file as if it is.

Writing a tag should show you potential html, which you can tab to complete. On Windows you can also press "ALT + ." to complete the closing tag.

Yeah, I've got Emmet installed so I guess it could either be that, or the default functionality of Sublime Text. It's very strange that I've gotten this far without utilizing intellisense at all for auto-completing HTML tags. I guess this time, once I noticed it, he was so quick about it that I didn't realize what he was doing. thanks, guys!
