I think they're used for different purposes in general.

Extension tubes is for taking close-up shots. Teleconvertors are for extending your focal range, i.e. zoom in more.

For example, if you use a 2x teleconvertor on a 70-200 lens, your lens will become a 140-400 lens.

taken literally... extension tube vs teleconverter

1 for shooting close, the other for shooting far (respectively)...either way, you'll lose capability on the other end.

But let me second guess... you are asking about extension tube vs close up filter.... then it depends on the native focal length of your lens.
