A remix involves manipulating and building on top of the original recorded track (or the original project files/tracks provided they're available to the remixer.) An arrangement uses the original composition to make a new track, but not does not use the original track. And yes, you're right there are some arrangements that referred to as remixes, the two terms are used synonymously by some.
