they do totally different things. Just looking at the manpage would make this extremely clear. -l lists a crontab, -e edits it.

As chris said,
Code:
~$ crontab -l      ## Lists all your cron jobs
~$ crontab -e      ## Opens your crontab for editing
For more details of options, just follow the manual of crontab: http://linux.die.net/man/1/crontab
