Spices are usually just called "seasoning" in America. "Spicey" is usually used to describe the heat in hot sauce, hot pepper, chili powder, etc. and as you probably already know, those spices can literally get you sweating if there's enough of them in a dish. It's just the way that people grew up using the word.
