Yes, you have to get interested in colour management in Adobe products. It all depends on colour profile and working space etc.
Calibrating your monitor may be useful if you are serious about color management. There are a number of good products on the market for that. I also find that the saturation looks way different on my mac than on my PC.
That being said, it's true that the results are often disappointing when viewing the swatches in PS or InDesign. Have you ever tried creating the theme in PS first and then transferring them over to kuler?
I have a similar problem - colours look brigher in Firefox, IE and Photoshop, darker in Illustrator and Dreamweaver. I've tried resetting the color settings in Bridge, but still get the same difference between Photoshop, and Illustrator and Dreamweaver. I can't understand this at all. I don't know if it has something to do with the fact that I have a color profile called "Natural Color Pro" installed on my computer (came with the monitor) which Photoshop reminds me is faulty every time I open it - I tell it to ignore the profile. I don't seem to be able to uninstall it for some reason.
The color shifts most likely occur because Kuler lives in your web browser, which is not color managed. The Adobe Creative Suite apps are using a Color Profile to display your colors.
