shitte is the "te" form of the verb shiru (=to know).
shite is the "te" form of the verb suru (=to do).

=> shitte imasu = I know (polite), shite imasu = I do/I am doing (polite)

Hi Dillion,

Just to add to コッドさん's answers, written in Japanese they look like this:

知(し)る,"shiru", to know
する,"suru", to do

知ってる and する are "te" form of those two different verbs.
