Living in North America, I've never heard "shat" except as a joke.
And I've never heard "shitted" at all.
In my experience (not, I realize, always the best guide)
the commonly used preterite of "shit" is "shit."
Similar to "hit."
I shit today.
I shit yesterday.
Using anything else will earn you odd looks.
