My crystal ball says your 'make' is an MSYS 'make'.  If so, install
the MinGW 'make' instead, it can work without sh.exe.  (You will
probably need MinGW or GnuWin32 ports of cp, rm and mv as well, they
are part of the Coreutils package.)

In general, when building Emacs, it is much better to remove MSYS from
Path, because MSYS tools are generally intended to be run only as part
of configuring and building Unix and GNU/Linux packages.  By contrast,
the Windows port of Emacs should be built using native Windows tools.
