They can both be synonyms in certain situations. "Benar" has a stronger association to mean what is appropriate or what is just. "Betul" is usually just associated to what is right or wrong, true or false, correct or incorrect, authentic or artificial. So "benar" is more relative and open to interpretation while "betul" is more straightforward and Boolean.
