This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
Both words have particular meanings in the context of sales/corporate jargon.
Leads are sales leads: potential customers. (This doesn't appear in ODO and isn't really represented in the OED entry which hasn't been updated since 1902.)
Conversions are those potential customers who actually become customers.
