I was looking at the miralax (polyethylene glycol) container, and the ingredient sounds similar to anti-freeze. Is it a type of anti-freeze?

In brief: No

Just because they sound similar doesn't mean that 2 chemical compounds have the same properties.
But i understand your concern: ethylene glycol and polyethylene glycol.
