I think we use the word pill for that small, compressed, hard form of medicine people swallow, usually whole. It can be completely round like a ball, flat on the top and bottom with round edges like a wheel, or it can take on lots of other shapes like a torpedo or a hexagon, etc.

I think we use the word tablet more for just the small, compressed, hard form of medicine that people swallow whole when it's flat on the top and bottom with round edges like a wheel.

At least that's my guess from daily living.
