In brief: Very different

Celiac disease is an allergy to a protein found in wheat called gluten.
It can be associated with abnormal liver tests but usually is associated with anemia, diarrhea or other intestinal issues. Autoimmune hepatitis is a disease affecting the liver caused by an overactive immune system. Both are likely genetically predetermined but not generally related to each other.
