Yes, Chametz is less of a problem on 14 Nisan. See Rambam Chametz UMatza 1:6-7 that on 14 Nisan consumption of Chametz "only" carries the punishment of lashes whereas on Pesach itself it carries the punishment of Karet. As an example of a stringency about Chametz which doesn't apply on 14 Nisan: see Shulchan Arukh OC 447:2 that Chametz is nullified in a ...
