Eu entendo que não há diferenças entre as palavras, posto que ambas convergem para a ideia de INDUZIR, CAUSAR, ESTIMULAR, FAZER...

From the sentences Umina came up with, the ones with "lead" could be about something 'unintentional' whereas with "made" it could be something involving manipulation or deceit. It's not a rule set in stone, though.
"Lead" could also denote that the person was saying something that was "'making me believe she died" (whoever is she in the story :D ) in a temporary basis. But as I listened more I "recalculated" that route...

And, of course, it could be also interchangeable in the sense RedSeahorse has pointed out. It goes with the general context.
