Yes, TSQL sets the CTCSS or DCS tone on both TX and RX. (Not Recommended).
Tone sets CTCSS or DCS on TX only.

Someone else will hopefully correct me if I'm wrong, (and I didn't look this up) but I believe that in this usage, "Tone" applies
when transmitting only. 
TSQL, or Tone Squelch applies to both transmitting & receiving. 

"Tone" is more common. 
If you use TSQL when you should have used Tone, others will be able to hear you, but you will only be able to hear them if they also
use the same tone. 
To complicate things slightly, many repeaters require a tone to activate them, but many repeaters strip out the tone as the
It is often a good idea to start with "tone" and only use TSQL if needed.
