What is the difference between a tetrahedral complex and a square planar complex?

A tetrahedral complex has 4 ligands at the corners of a tetrahedron. While a square planar complex has 4 ligands at the corners of a square. I hope I answered your question.

As a side note, a tetrahedral complex is normally formed from AX4, while square planar is usually formed from AX4E2.
