{nIteb} describes the situation of an action, the other is an adjective. 
You could even say {nIteb jImob}. "I am (the only one who is) alone".

Of course, both words cover the same idea. Examples show the difference:

{nIteb jISop} "I eat all alone." (my friends might join later)

{jImob} "I am lonely" (I have no friends. This life sucks.)

Disclaimer: This might possibly not be 100% correct, but it may help you 
understand the difference.
