Well, technically guitar chords (the letter names like "G" or "Em") are the same on either instrument. Guitar tabs (charts with numbers that tell you where to put your fingers on the fretboard) do not convert directly over to the uke.
For some reason people these days are using the two terms interchangeably, but they don't really mean the same thing.
