In my world, shortcakes are large, slightly sweet biscuits. The Baking powder variety. not much like pie dough.

Shortbread is a dense, butter-rich, non-leavened bread, and shortcakes are essentially a variation on pie dough -- flaky and layered. Substituting one for the other is possible, but it would yield very different results.
