The principle difference is that KDE uses KApplication instead of 
QApplication. You could also switch from QMainWindow to KMainWindow, although 
it probably isn't strictly necessary. KDE also uses i18n for translation 
(available in PyKDE's kdecore module), while Qt uses tr.

Beyond that, PyKDE/KDE just offer some additional widgets and features, and 
using PyKDE/KDE will allow you to create dialog boxes and other things that 
correspond more closely to KDE's "look and feel".
