I don't use Kate much, but try this:

Open a Python file, run menu Build -> Build. At the bottom a tabbed 
notebook appears with an error message that no Makefile was found. 
Click the tab "Target Settings" and put

python "%f" <additional script arguments>

into the "Quick Compile" entry. Then go to Settings -> "Configure 
Shortcuts" and choose whatever key you want for the "Quick Compile" 

Instead of the python command, you could write a simple shell script 
that runs python or perl or whatever depending on the file extension 
or hash bang.
