There's a huge difference between them : "He's being foolish means that he is like that right now in a particular situation. To put in a nutshell: his behavior is foolish, while if you call him foolish, you give him a characteristic and it will mean that he's just the way he is.

The difference is,
He is being foolish means, at that particular time, he's lacking good sense or judgement and He's foolish means, he lacks good sense or judgement, not at that particular time but as a person.
