ihre belongs to the possessives: mein, dein, sein, ihr, sein (neuter), unser. euer, ihr, Ihr (Your-formal). Sie belongs to personal pronouns: ich, du, er, sie, es, wir, ihr, sie, Sie. Looking at endings makes a lot clear.

SIE mag ihre Tochter. = SHE likes her daughter.

Sie mag IHRE Tochter. = She likes HER daugter.

(and so on)
