It's different in that the other Prizes are picked by leading professionals in the field, whereas the Peace Prize is picked by a group of Norwegian politicians. You can't have professional peaceniks get it, though, or they'd be awarding it to The Grateful Dead again.

But even if it were picked by people who tried to establish peace, the criteria isn't to select someone who has achieved the most peace (though, let's be honest that Metternich did a lot to secure peace, too!), but someone who has tried the most to achieve peace.
