Yes, the constructions are in some cases parallel:
Ses nouvelles chaussures manquent à Lisa. -- Lisa misses her new shoes.
Ses nouvelles chaussures plaisent à Lisa. -- Lisa likes her new shoes. Her new shoes appeal to Lisa.
Note that the construction with plaire is identical to English if you use "appeal" as the verb.
Thank you Chris!
