If I understand the definitions, then these sequences are identical.

No, these differ.  A088669(121) is one less than A091580(121), and
thereafter the difference steadily increases.

I'm pretty sure these are the same, but less sure than I was about the
other pairs.  I think someone else should look.

Hm, the question is if there's a number that sets a new record for
product of divisors without at least tying for number of divisors, or
conversely if it at least ties the record for number of divisors
without setting a record for product.

I don't know enough off the top of my head to prove it.  But rather
than checking up to 1.5 million as mentioned in that comment, you
could generate a nice big b-file for the Ramanujan sequence from the
lists of prime exponents (they rounded the numbers, so we'd need to do
some multiplying):
and then we just need similarly many terms for the "largest product of
divisors" sequence and we can at least see if there are any "small"
