Just an alternative word for purple, that's all. The dictionary defines piws as porffor coch, 'reddish purple', the same as the English 'puce'.

If the dictionary is defining piws as porffor coch, wouldn't it be better to teach purple as porffor as it is a more accurate translation?

In the wild, people use either word to mean purple, so it as well to learn both, really.
