https://github.com/satoshilabs/slips/blob/master/slip-0044.md As per this slip, if we just change the cointype in the descriptor, the deriveaddress rpc call should work to generate ethereum addresses from an xpub too. But it isn't? I can not find any good documentation on this rpc call whether it supports all the bip standards in the derivation path or not?

No. Bitcoin addresses and Ethereum addresses are constructed and defined differently and bitcoin-cli certainly does not support Ethereum address generation. For more details on why see this question.
