The Sith (and thus, the Sith Empire) is completely wiped out in the Ruusan Campaign, except for Darth Bane, who establishes the hidden "Rule of Two" Sith. This Sith Order culminates in Darth Sidious destroying the Jedi (except for Obi-Wan and Yoda), and finally fulfilling the Sith's long-held dream of a galaxy-spanning Empire (except for the Unknown Regions, which the Emperor was working to bring under his control, mostly through Grand Admiral Thrawn.)

So really, while Palpatine's Empire is not contiguous with TOR's Sith Empire, the former is the spiritual successor of the latter.
Jedi vs. Sith, Page 97, column 2, paragraph 4, line 1:

Prior to the Battle of Ruusan, the Jedi used crystals from many different sources, and ignited lightsabers in every known hue, including purple, orange, and gold.
