It's mostly just wordplay, but sampler is something you can use to modify the samples heavily, like filter them, add modulations, timestretch, cut, loop, compress, EQ, etc. A sample player is something that you simply load up a sample with and play it. It would not have many options to shape the sound as a full fledged sampler would.

As kama said, some companies put the word player after their 'lite' versions of a sampler, with less parameters available for altering.
