I'd explore a little by digging them up to see whether or not they have developed roots. Bulbs need to develop roots before they can sprout tops and it's possible that's what your shallots are doing - growing roots. It's still early in the season and they may be waiting for warmer soil temperatures to trigger root and top growth. I'd just be a little more patient with them. Hope they sprout soon!
