No there is no difference between soul and self. Shiva Sutras verse 1.1 says,
Awareness which has absolute freedom of all knowledge and activity is the Self or nature of Reality or Atma.
Clearly here self is considered same as Atma. In Vijnanbhairava Tantra, verse 100, it says,
The Same self characterized by consciousness is present in all the bodies; there is no difference in it anywhere. Therefore a person contemplating on everything as full of that consciousness can conquer transmigratory existence.
Kshemraaja in his commentary for the verse above says,
Moreover the aforesaid consciousness is the Atma or nature of the entire universes consisting of both existent object or non-existent but imagined objects(like a sky flower).
