You need to tell your KDE session to look into the directories where you 
compiled kate too. I install compiled stuff to /usr/local and use a quite 
minimal approach that with KDE Runtime 4.11 and back then KDE Applications 
4.12 base install, now 4.13 works for me to testing master branch of KDEPIM 
and Akonadi related stuff.

martin@merkaba:~/.kde/env> cat kdedirs.sh 
if [ -z $KDEDIRS ]; then
        export KDEDIRS="/usr/local/"
        export KDEDIRS="/usr/local/:$KDEDIRS"

if [ -z $QT_PLUGIN_PATH ]; then
        export QT_PLUGIN_PATH="/usr/local/lib/kde4"
        export QT_PLUGIN_PATH="/usr/local/lib/kde4:$QT_PLUGIN_PATH"

There are guides for setting up a KDE development environment on 
techbase.kde.org. I suggest you read those.

Alternative upgrade to Jessie/Testing:

martin@merkaba:~> rmadison kate | cut -c 1-70
 kate | 4:4.4.5-1  | squeeze | amd64, armel, i386, ia64, kfreebsd-amd6
 kate | 4:4.8.4-1  | wheezy  | source, amd64, armel, armhf, i386, ia64
 kate | 4:4.13.1-2 | jessie  | source, amd64, armel, armhf, i386, kfre
 kate | 4:4.13.1-2 | sid     | source, amd64, armel, armhf, hurd-i386,

Yes that is testing and there might be issues at times, but in generally I am 
quite satisfied.

Also note that this question is not really Debian specific but upstream 
related. And that there is a debian-kde mailinglist for KDE specific things on
