Thats pretty doubtful considering Palpatine probably spent most of his time throughout his life on his political career, he would not have had much time to train.
Whereas the Jedi spent their whole lives training their Jedi skills, and Mace was roughly the same age as Palpatine.
We don't even know when Palpatine started his Sith training, it might have even been after he had begun his career in politics, so no, it is not safe to say that he had more training.
