Aptitude does not have autoremove. Check it out here:

2.2.7. Dependency resolution of aptitude

The selection of a package in aptitude not only pulls in packages which are defined in its "Depends:" list but also defined in the "Recommends:" list if the menu "F10 → Options → Dependency handling" is set accordingly. These auto installed packages are removed automatically if they are no longer needed under aptitude.

aptitude doesnt need the autoremove command because it removes depends when you remove a package, where apt sometimes leaves the depends behind then you need to use apt-get autoremove or deborphan to get rid of them.
