I've found the following chart for beer ( https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0093/2142/files/Yeast_Substitutions.pdf ) and was wondering if anyone had ever seem something similar for wine/mead yeasts?

Not that complet in the substitution but...you have this

http://winemakermag.com/yeast-strains-chart

Also there are some very similar strains. The comparisons are usually between wyeast and white labs (both liquid) and lalvin-gervin-vintners harvest

The most common meadmaking strains are in dry form in all of the companies except k1v

The ones i know because i use (second row is vintners harvest)
D47 is CY17
Ec1118 is CL23
The one from lalvin that metabolizes malic acid but i cant seem to remember is MA33
This ones also have gervin equivalents but i dont use gervin so i dont remember them

There is also a 1388 equivalent in whitelabs but i cant remember the name. Found it in the internet so...
