To answer your question. NO, they are not the same.

Topspin serves bounce up.

Kick serves bounce to the side.


Now, for a little extra comment: Even though they are considered two different types of serves, they will still cross each others boundaries. Its not like comparing topspin and slice (where one is OBVIOUSLY nothing like the other). The topspin and kick will be similar in several respects. I wont go into why and how because you were really asking for that!
