Both words derive from the noun sense, but have different meanings. Sensation is again a noun and refers to sensations and feelings, or also could mean big success. An example of the latter in a sentence would be "The Beatles were a sensation in the 60s", while you could also use sensation in a sentence like "I have lost all sensation in my mouth".
Sensitive on the other hand is an adjective, and refers to being thoughtfull, or having feelings. For example, "The company was very sensitive towards the needs of it's employees".
