probably about as much as "tell" and "recount" are in English.
You can tell the boss your name, or you can recount to the boss a tale of your colleague's misdeeds.
En français: Vous pouvez dire votre nom au patron, ou vous pouvez lui raconter l'histoire des méfaits de votre collègue.
So not quite interchangeable in all circumstances. If it's a matter of recounting a story, then you can tell the story and it means the same thing, but you don't recount your name to the boss. You tell the boss your name.
