SETTE is not listed in W. Seibicke's Historisches Deutsches Vornamenbuch. This makes it rather unlikely that Sette is or was actually used as a registered given name.
Seibicke has SETTCHEN, though: pet form of Lisette. And this makes sense to me and could well be the missing link to Elisabeth. Of course Lisette is a French variant of Elisabeth, but the German pronunciation lee-zeh-teh is possible and would lead to Sette (zeh-teh).
Roswitha as the origin of Sette seems very unlikely to me.
