When you have an org that already contains records, is there a way to make Change Data Capture (CDC) emit "create" changes for all the existing records when it is first turned on?

No. CDC only goes forward, the same as if you just deployed a new Record-Triggered Flow or other automations. You'll still need to mirror the data in a traditional manner (i.e. query every record in the database for the object(s) you're interested in).
