They don't necessarily mean the same, no. The person in question might have a voracious appetite and be able to eat a huge quantity of food without feeling full. If he stuffs himself, then he eats a lot but we don't know for sure that he is full. In BrE at least, to "stuff yourself" simply means "to eat a large quantity". Bear in mind, though, that saying "I'm stuffed" means "I'm full. I don't think I could eat another thing".
