What is considered a complete game pitched in baseball?

It's pretty simple really - a pitcher is credited with a complete game if he is the only pitcher for his team in an official game. There is some argument as to whether a pitcher would be credited with a complete game if say, the starting pitcher didn't get any outs, then a reliever came in and finished the game. He got all the outs in the game - so did he get a complete game? Semantics, semantics...

Has an American baseball game ended in a tie 0-0?

Yes, baseball games can end in a tie. After the 5th inning a baseball game is considered a complete game. If weather causes a game to end or it is getting far too late in the evening to finish, the game will end. If it is tied, they will replay the game at another time, usually added to a later game's schedule, turning that day's event into a double-header.
