How can I highlight comments that have been made by registered users of my blog?

Comments that are left by registered users are given the class "byuser" - so you can create a style in your theme's stylesheet to point out these comments. Something like:

.commentlist li.byuser {

That would make the background of users' comments red (insert a more appropriate color).

If you are not using a custom theme, I'd recommend creating a child theme to do this.
