In brief: Distress

Simple palpitations do not cause sweating and sweating does not cause palpitations.
If you have so severe a spell that you almost pass out or do actually pass out, you may very well become sweaty.

In brief: Various ways

If palpitations are caused by anxiety, or result in anxiety, the adrenaline rush can can sweating.
This can be true also if they are due to systemic disease such as hyperthyroidism.
