It looks to me like the only difference between these two options is that the time lapse feature creates a video in-camera and interval timer shooting requires external software to combine images. Am I correct?
I also see that time lapse is limited to a maximum of 20 mins recording time.
On a side note, I ran into fellow shooting a time lapse with a new D4 and he found he had to shoot jpegs because the camera buffer would fill up after a few minutes shooting in RAW. He was using the new XQD card in his D4.
