I don't know anything about powershell, but generally "cd" is a builtin
to the shell (because it is impacting the shell's environment). So it
may be that powershell "cd" expands "~" itself, but that the shell
doesn't expand it for executed commands.

There are some Windows folks who hang out on this list, so you may get a
better response. But you might also ask in the Git for Windows mailing
list:
