We're looking to apply a 60 day retention policy tag to Inbox and Sent Items.  Will this also apply to the Inbox and Sent Items folder that is in the Archive Mailbox as well?

Not specifically.  You'll need to set a retention policy that specifies what you want.  You can set policies that will delete items after a specific amount of time.  You can set policies that will move items to archive instead of deletion.  Set these policies under Organization Configuration / Mailbox / Retention Policies.

The problem I discovered in my testing is that the retention policies also apply to the archive mailbox. So the Inbox and Sent Items folder in the Archive mailbox get deleted as well if they are older than 60 days.
