It looks like the Louisiana Hot Tamales use cornmeal and wraps then in paper while the Texas ones are made with Masa (corn that is soaked in Lime :not the fruit: and it's ground differently that cornmeal) and wrapped in corn husk. I'm sure there are other differences but these seem to be the biggest ones.
