The Sith Emperor withdrew into seclusion following the Treaty of Coruscant, allowing the Dark Council to manage most affairs of the Empire. This is presumably due to a combination of factors: 1) focusing his attention on Force-related concerns, and 2) his ongoing mental war with the imprisoned Revan.

The main reason that Emperor Vitiate appears to never be mentioned again is because he dies in this game, which obviously is a very new story. He is killed at the end of the Jedi Knight class story.

While Vitiate and Palpatine shared an obsession with Dark Side power in order to live forever, there is no reason at all to assume that they were the same individual. It's more likely that Vitiate was an early practitioner of some of the rituals that Palpatine would later use to extend his own life, such as transferring his consciousness to clone bodies.
