Hmm... I've never seen this error when using ProbabilityScalePlot

I assume after the second line you posted above there was
something like
data = RandomReal[dist, {100}];
else data is undefined and there would be an error when you use
either ProbabilityScalePlot or QuantilePlot. But to answer your question:
For ProbabilityScalePlot, the y-axis is the cumulative
probability function. In effect, the resulting plot is
equivalent to something like making a log-log plot of the hazard
function (HazardFunction[WeibullDistribution[7,200],t]) combined
with a log-log plot of the empirical hazard function and
modifying the y-axis to be a probability scale.
For QuantilePlot you are comparing empirical quantiles with
quantiles of the given distribution. Basically, this is a
parametric plot with the y-axis given by
Quantile[WeibullDistribution[7,200],p] and the x-axis given by
Quantile[data, p] for p running from approximately 1/n to
approximately n/(n+1) where n is the number of data points.
