We show, when $G$ is a nilpotent or reductive Lie group, that the entropy of any surjective endomorphism coincides with the entropy of its restriction to the toral component of the center of $G$. In particular, if $G$ is a semi-simple Lie group, the entropy of any surjective endomorphism always vanishes. Since every compact group is reductive, the formula for the entropy of a endomorphism of a compact group reduces to the formula for the entropy of an endomorphism of a torus. We also characterize the recurrent set of conjugations of linear semi-simple Lie groups.
