This is by design, in fact. Sage uses (and builds) its own Python. So you shouldn't expect this.

However, my understanding is that

sage -sh
easy_install scitools


should work, where the Sage Python is invoked in the Sage subshell. For some reason that didn't work for me, but

sage -sh
easy_install brian


did, and I could use it in Sage, so the problem doesn't seem to be easy_install.
