In brief: Probably same
Celiac disease is also called gluten sensitive enterophy or gluten intolerance.
One would need to further clarify the meaning of "gluten intolerance" to make sure this is not being misinterpretted.

In brief: Can be diiferent
Celiac disease is one type of gluten intolerance (it is actually a food-induced auto-immunity condition) that is confused with wheat allergy and usually manifests as malabsorptive diarrhea and can also include a rash and/or arthralgias.
There are other types of gluten intolerance(s) that can manifest in various ways, including memory loss, balance and various other symptoms.
