At some level they're the same, you use them to route calls outbound, the main difference that comes in mind is that a POTS DP will discard exact matches while route patterns won't, and there's a different way to discard digits.
RPs can also add/remove digits in the same page/config, while DPs require translation-rules or some other configuration in the IOS.
I think Java explained it very well, I will add a note taking it wayyyyy basic:
- POTS dial peers are part of IOS and can be used to route calls for CME/CUCM to specific devices, like a PRI or a fax machine directly attached to the router.
-Route patterns on the other hand can route directly to a device (as long as it's not part of a route list) like a gateway or a trunk, or, they can route through a route list which can then serve multiple devices in a route group.
