let me answer you in simple ways, Canonical tags actually help you control your duplicate content on your site, while robots.txt is part of the robots exclusion protocol (REP), a group of web standards that that tells google crawler which URL you don't want to Crawl.

A canonical tag tell the search engines that a specific page represents the master copy of a page ie declare a single page as its own source or for duplicate pages to reference their originating page. Whereas robots.txt is a text file webmasters create to instruct search engine robots how to crawl & index pages.
