In 「彼はまだ来ない」,  the focus is on the action of coming.

The meaning of the sentence is close to:

He hasn’t come yet.

He hasn’t arrived yet.

 

In 「彼はまだ来てない」,  the focus is on the state of his being here.

The meaning of the sentence is close to:

He hasn’t been here yet.

He isn’t here yet.

I think it's not so much difference.

When I was asked 「鈴木さんは、“もう“来ましたか。」. I tend to use 「まだ来てない」.
