Is it currently impossible (without custom template, at least) to put placeholder in the grid column filter?

Hi Alex, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
We have prepared the sample based on your requirement which can be download from following link, 

In this sample, we have put place holder for each filter column by using Grid create event. This event triggers after Grid control created. Please refer to the following code example and Help document for more information, 
Code example
<ej-grid #grid  [dataSource]="gridData" [allowPaging]="true" [allowFiltering]="true"  [toolbarSettings.toolbarItems]="['add', 'edit', 'delete','cancel','update']" [toolbarSettings.showToolbar]="true" (toolbarClick)="selectColumn($event)"  (create)="create($event)"
       . . . 
@create event 
export class AppComponent { 
           //Create event 
                var length = $(".e-filtertext").length; 
                for( var i=0;i<length;i++){ 
                    var placeholderVal = args.model.columns[i].field +" "+"Value"; //placeholder text (for demonstration purpose we have used the corresponding column field name as placeholder)    
                 $(".e-filtertext").eq(i).attr("placeholder",placeholderVal); //Set the placeholder for each filter column 

If we misunderstood your query, then could you please share the more information about your requirement? 

Venkatesh Ayothiraman.
