I'm going to get pre-exposure rabies vaccine. Is it possible that it contains residual live virus, which can enter the saliva and infect by e.g. kiss?

In brief: No

The present 2 forms of vaccine available in the US and recommended by the WHO are made with inactivated (killed) virus .
They are safe enough that they consider them safe during pregnancy. I would consider the possibility that any virus would remain alive after the inactivation process and pass as you describe to be a myth.
