The most fundamental difference is in how they are initiated.

Self-healing starts when an application is launched and certain missing/failed components are detected by the application That launches a self-heal automatically. For more information on that, see http://www.symantec.com/connect/articles/how-does-package-self-heal

A repair, on the other hand, is a more complete reinstall and is launched outside the application via msiexec .

An explanation of exactly what the difference is would take a bit more space; I think that this is a good starting point.
