Not sure that Sidious not thinking of replacing Dooku with Ventress precludes her from being perceived as a threat. For one, there's the fact that Anakin was a superior candidate for that. Also, even though Dooku's power might be the hard cap for Ventress' own, perhaps she only needs to get close to that level for the two of them to challenge Sidious. After all, there are OOU quotes stating he was wary of Ventress' growth indeed, though perhaps they are only applicable to Disney Canon:

Yeah, it makes sense that Palpatine wouldn't perceive Ventress as a serious threat. After all, Asajj was easily bested by Dooku, who himself is vastly below Palpatine. Even the two working together would never be able to better Sidious.

How do you explain the above starwars.com quotes then?

The first quote is the only one that's relevant, in all honesty. Being "wary" only meant he watched out for any potential dangers that could arise. The first quote did indeed say Sidious was troubled, but the evidence conflicts- Mr. Filoni, the show's creator, stated that Sidious didn't actually perceive Ventress as a real threat and, when one analyzes the power levels of Ventress, Dooku and Sidious, this assertion makes perfect sense. Furthermore, Sidious is an excellent liar and manipulator- just because he said Ventress was a threat doesn't mean he actually viewed her as such.

Filoni didn't say Sidious didn't consider Ventress a (potential) threat, but that he didn't think so highly of Ventress' abilities as to have her kill Dooku. So really, all Sidious thought was that Ventress wouldn't surpass Dooku. There's still room for the duo to eventually challenge Sidious, even if they weren't strong enough at that point. So there's no contradiction in him being "wary" and "troubled".

I actually think it was a good  idea to clear that up, considering that there are people around who really think Sidious considered her a threat.
