“What are causative verbs?”

I work part time at a jyuku. I teach English to high school students. The other day one of my students asked me if the word “force” is a causative verb. I saw some study aids, and some said that causative verbs are only the words “make”, “have”, and “let”, some said that causative verbs include the word “force”, “allow”, and so on. I was really confused, and I haven’t found the answer yet. So, could you tell me whether we can regard the word “force” as a causative verb or not.
