SLES is Open Source.
What you should ask is why is the no gratis SLES. But then again SLES is gratis (support is not). Just download it from www.novell.com all you need is to register. And Novell let you download the binary distribution of SLES. But RedHat does not allow you to download the binaries for RHEL. So CentOS compile the source rpm to binary rpm as you can't get them from RedHat. Why should some one download the source rpm from Novell and compile them to binary rpm's. When anyone can download them directly from Novell?
