The difference is in the nature of the capture. With Hurling, a Dwarf lands on a square occupied by a Troll, thereby capturing the Troll. With Shoving, a Troll lands on an empty square (but a non-adjacent one, which is not possible with the normal Troll move), resulting in the capture of every Dwarf adjacent to its new position. As far as I can see, no piece can ever pass through an occupied square, as this is not specified as a difference from the normal Dwarf move.
