Do you need to extrude the shape?  If not, the Classic 3D renderer will show the gradient ramp.  If you do need to precompose and don't want to have to build in C4D Lite, you might be able to get away with using the layer as a track matte for a 2D solid with gradient on it.

This is to be expected. A gradient would have to be a texture, which requires a completely different workflow like creating an extrusion object in Cinema 4D Lite and importing it via Cineware. The native extrusions in AE only handle plain materials. You may want to read the help files on the subject.
