I know I'm going to regret asking this, but why is it called the Chewbacca hand?

The answer to your question is that it depends...

Heads up against each other the A4 is a favourite, obviously.

Heads up against another hand - it depends what that other hand is. If you are heads up against a big Ace, like AK, AJ or AT (but not AQ obviously) then QTs has better odds than A4o. If you are heads up against a pair then you would prefer QTs against all pairs lower than a T, and prefer A4 against higher pairs (against AA you'd prefer to have QTs).

In general, in multi-way pots the QT is better. If you play QTs and A4o against 8 other random hands to the river (assume all hands see the river), the QTs will win a higher percentage of pots than the A4o.

So, even though A4o is a favourite heads up against QTs, it is actually a worse hand in most situations.

The value of a hand changes a lot depending on the situation and how many opponents. For example, everyone knows that 22 is a slight favourite over AK if played all the way to the river. However, if you have a three-way pot with 22 against AK and, say, JT (or two other overcards), the 22 is actually in bad shape. In this 3 handed situation the AK will win the biggest percentage of pots, even though it is a small dog heads up against 22.
