In brief: Bipolar/Narcissism
The two share some features, especially grandiosity & inflated esteem, and they may coexist in same person.

In brief: Similar, not same
In a manic episode there is an inflated sense of self worth and sometimes grandiosity, but during a depressive episode there is a decreased sense of self worth.
Narcissism is a chronic and consistent air of superiority and a need for admiration which is actually due to a very fragile self esteem and increased sensitivity to criticism.
