In brief: Completely different

Adrenaline is a hormone made by the adrenal glands that is a stress, "fight or flight" hormone, released with physical or emotional stress.
Endorphins are morphine like peptides made in the brain and pituitary gland that help decrease pain, produce a "pleasure" type of feeling and are released during exercise, pain, sexual activity.
