So actually they are quite different, (although similar at some level),

Given that celery isn't really a replacement for taskflow although one 
could say, from what I've heard from others, that taskflow is a 
super-set of what celery is so taskflow likely can replace parts of 
celery (but not vice-versa).

Feel free to jump on #openstack-state-management IRC channel if u want 
to chat in person more about why (it gets into details that might just 
be easier to explain in person).
