The terms have no meaning. You could call yourself a PM with experience delivering projects using an adaptive or agile lifecycle.

At the end of the day, a title or role name is just a label. You need to look at the expected accountabilities or responsibilities expected by the organization for the position.

I agree with Kiron.
Additionally, I came across an article explaining how a project leader can be a project manager, but a project manager cannot always be a project leader - an argumentative idea.

I personally think that the only comparison in terms of job titles, that has a clear difference is the one between a scrum master and a project manager - just a thought.

Best.

In a true agile world, the best type of "project manager" in Agile is a servant leader. The most valuable services that the leader takes on, in my opinion, are:
* Cutting down roadblocks/impediments
* Communication regarding status
* Evangelism and education regarding agile
* Inspiring and empowering the team to solve problems

not sure about the question context. I consider both.
If I am a Project manager for an agile Project I can play both roles. If I am playing the role for a funtional área I can be an agile leader.

I hold the certification from APMG called AgilePM. Does that count? I leave the interpretation to you :)
