Quick question time: When you hear the wording Password Manager is it used fairly interchangeably with Password Vault? Do those two terms equate to be the same in your mind; or does Manager seem different from Vault?

In my eyes they are interchangeable. I guess a vault is where they are stored and the manager is around the access controls/sharing controls etc. I personally use Password Manager as my go-to phrase.

They're not interchangeable at all! A password manager is the app used to record/mantain the passwords you have. Within said manager, you have vaults which work like folders to organize by client or department (for example).
From a support perspective it makes a dramatic difference whether or not someone is having issues with a vault (one small piece of the app) or a manager (the entire app).
