Are generalist and r-strategists and specialists and r-strategists synonyms?

No, I wouldn’t consider them to be. Generalist and Specialists species are looking at their role in their environment, but k- and r- strategist focus more on the organisms themselves (i.e. reproductive rate, size, and life span).
