Scratch that; they are just warp beings. Daemons belong to a God, enslavers don’t.

Appears the difference is that they can also possess the minds of non-psychic beings once they reach the materium.

Other differences are that they tend to use the bodies that they possess longer and try not to show any outward signs of possession so they can blend in and further whatever means they are trying to gain. Mostly furthering the transferring of more enslavers into the materium.

(Most) Daemons are created by humanity, and are intimately familiar with us; what makes us tick and how to make us scream. Enslavers, on the other hand, use us as little more than a living, breathing portal through which they can pour and overrun a world, then move on. Enslavers are warp aliens, formed long ago in the eddies the War in the Heavens; daemons are warp nightmares, fashioned out of the stuff of our dreams and fears.

this is my fan idea:

the enslaver species originated in real space, hence they are xenos and not daemons

somehow their ancestors evolved the ability to mass reproduce in the Warp
once an enslaver reaches maturity in real space, it enters the Warp, rapidly duplicates itself numerous times, and then promptly dies. Its spawn possess the minds of hapless sentient beings and enter real space, where they mature and the cycle continues...

Possible, but I imagine the Enslavers are little more complex, and they do live in the warp.

Apart from the duplication, that life-cycle is similar to Psychneuin, which are a corporeal species that uses the warp for travel and, um, reproduction...

The Psychneuin are from the HH book A Thousand Sons. And I'd argue that their methods of reproduction are rather different: Psychneuin teleport their eggs into their targets, while Enslavers simply possess unguarded psykers and turn them into fleshy portals...
