I'd say more the opposite; true light-on-white is pretty much by definition high key, but you can have high key with, for example, a yellow background...

Light on white refers to a white or bright colored subject, while high key is possible with a dark subject, too. In "Light on white" the challenge is to avoid blown areas (in the subject), while high works well when they are there. Just my 0.02 .
