I don't know what apt-get autoremove does on Ubuntu but have you checked
 pkg_deinstall(1) and it's man page? Right from there:

     The pkg_deinstall command is a wrapper of pkg_delete(1) used to
     deinstall packages, which understands wildcards and is capable
     of *recursing through dependencies*.

(emphasis mine)

Have a look at -r and/or -R options.
