My iPad has a playlist that is not on my Mac

I just noticed on iTunes, with my iPad plugged into my Mac, that the iPad had a playlist that I deleted months ago on my Mac.

A couple of weeks ago, I got a HomePod, and signed up for Apple Music, so I turned iCloud Music Library on.

So how do I synchronized the same playlists so that the deleted playlist is deleted from my devices too?

-Do you sync your iPad directly with your Mac? It may be a playlist that never got removed from the iPad, because you haven't synced it since you removed the playlist from iTunes.

I believe you have to have iCloud Music Library enabled on all of the devices you want to sync.
