[hops-util-py] copy_to_local bugfixes and removal of localize

Description

The current implementation of copy_to_local uses a recursive filesystem check to local and hdfs to decide if a directory needs to be downloaded, by comparing it to an already downloaded directory if one exists. This mechanism is not working and is also way too complex to maintain. Instead we should just check that the same files exists on HDFS and local by globbing.

Also the localize method is redundant since copy_to_local is used for the same purpose and will be removed.
