Revan did survive, but more as a vegetable. He was a source of power for Vitiate to feed from, not as the person he was before the battle, so it depends on your definition of "surviving".

Physically, yes, he was unable to operate, but it was stated that he could mentally influence the actions of Vitiate during that time, so still had power even in that state.

So who do you call more powerful. The slave who can slightly influence the thoughts of the one who slaved him, or the slaver who is still up and moving around like the bad-ass Sith emporer he was?

As much as Revan could influence, he was still rendered in a physically vegetative state by the Sith Emporer. Mentally, he was caged inside his own head with limited abilities to get into Vitiate's head, and only Vitiate. There was no ability to contact the outside world. Even being in prison on Hoth would be more of an existence then being a bug in the back of Vitiate's mind.

Would the Emperor have survived a battle with Lord Vitiate? It is clear that the latter has greater dark-side power than the former, as he could strip the Force from entire planets, thus he would simply destroy Sidious - as Revan was able to call on both light and dark, he was able to survive and continue to fight in whatever way he could.

I suppose that depends on the circumstance. With what is established, a straight-up fight between the two would probably go to Vitiate. But if it were the climax of a protracted war between the two, I think Sidious would be able to figure something out ahead of time to level the playing field, and come out on top.

Sidious was a better tactician, yes, but in a fight akin to that Revan fought, Vitiate would undoubtedly win.
