May be because they listed only DISCOVERIES but not INVENTIONS.

Tesla was not scientist, but rather engineer-developer, implementing in practical use the results of discoveries made before him. After emigrating to the USA (1884) he was working under Edison and then patented rotating magnetic field produced by two phase-shifted AC coils (and made first AC motor), patented a few inventions on transformers, telephone, telegraph and radio power transmission (note that radiotransmission itself was invented before him by Popov and Markoni).
