The main difference is that Master Primes are a range of very expensive cinema lenses made by Zeiss while a high speed lens is simply a generic term for lenses that have a relatively large maximum aperture. A "high speed lens" for 35mm cinematography would probably be around f/1.2 or faster (like older Zeiss Super Speeds or modern Master Primes or Cooke S5s) compared to roughly f/1.8 or beyond for non-high speed lenses (like older Zeiss Standard Speeds or Ultra Primes or Cooke S4s).
