The answer lies in your post as stated by you viz; "....the difference between a legal notice served to defedant and the plaint submitted in the court against the same defendant." since the legal notice is issued by plaintiff to defendant whereas when plaintiff do not get satisfactory response from addressee (defendant) plaint is filed against the defendant (addressee of the legal notice ) before the jurisdictional Court on the basis of legal notice with a copy of the notice..

legal notice is sent to a person at his address before filing of suit in court.

plaint is filed in court against a person who failed to comply legal notice sent to him

By sending a legal notice the aggrieved is demanding the opposite party to comply with the legal demands made through the said legal notice.

If the person receiving legal notice is not responding or denies to comply with the demands made, then the aggrieved person can appraoch court of law with a lawsuit.

 Plaint is a legal document that contains the plaintiff's claim presented before a civil court of competent jurisdiction. It is a pleading of the plaintiff and the first step taken for the institution of a suit

Thus instead of posting questions of academic interest, you can come out with facts or background details so that you can get more proper opinion from various experts of this forum
