The difference is in connotation, when I say dialogs, I mean the resources and when I say window I mean one that I made using CreateWindowEx().
Also, you can have a dialog be the main window. When I don't need/want much control over my main window I just make it a resource.
*EDIT.... forgot to mention....
A dialog's callback function is also slightly different than a window's. You've probably noticed while going through the tutorials. I also believe that there a dialog specific messages (like WM_INITDIALOG)
