I don't know the etymology of route in English, in Dutch it's another French loan and therefore pronounced the French way (kinda, we do pronounce the silent e at the end).
edit; I got curious and grabbed my OED:
route /ru:t/ origin; Middle English from Old French rute
suite /swi:t/ origin late 17th century, from French, from Anglo-Norman French siwte
Then it gets interesting, for more info on origin you get pointed to suit
. Apparently the words suite and suit have the same origin, they both mean "something that belongs together" , a suit is a bunch of clothes that belong together, a suite a bunch of rooms.
