It very well may be -

but I am not sure. Dynamic range is basically signal to noise ratio - and latitude - as I understand it - is usually related to sensitivity to overexposure . Correctly exposed and developed color negative film looks pale (quite transparent) which means that huge overhead of it's sensitivity is reserved for excessive highlights.

But all this is just my understanding and I would not be surprised if real definition is as you say - DR is the same as exposure latitude.
