If Shapeshifter supported save states like some emulators, one way of doing it could be by preparing a minimal size mac partition on file with stripped OS and one game in it, and set all to colors to black so the desktop is never visible.

Then launch a script on Mac the launches the game and on shuts down the MacOS on game exit and make a save state right on the script start. And then, finally on Amiga side run a script that starts Shapershifter from that save state without the configuration screen.

Otherwise, without save states I can't think of a simple way to hide the MacOS startup.
