When you do it from the commandline it gets executed directly on the machine. When you do it from PHP (Or something else) It gets executed first on the server and then pipped down to you.

Basically commandline should be faster by a long shot since it's being executed directly.

But when you run from a web browser, you have to throw in the overhead for apache, or what ever web server you're using.
