The application wizard in the Eclipse tooling currently only allows to create application from templates. The web console additionally allows creating from images and git source.
One can see the difference when comparing the listing of options in Eclipse vs the listing in the web console (which also includes images):
Running OpenShift using our openshift-vagrant box, I can see different proposals between the web console and the Eclipse tooling when adding an application in a project. For example, jboss-eap64-openshift:1.1 is not proposed in the Eclipse tooling.
