The choice between leapt and leaped as different spellings of the past forms of the verb 'to leap' is like that between Dreamt - dreamed - largely a matter of taste. The two spellings may be used to indicate different pronunciations, to have the same vowel as the present tense 'leap' or to rhyme with 'slept', but this is not intrinsic. In any case, both have precisely the same meaning.
