Because priests are dedicated to the Lord, and it was disrespectful to dedicate something maimed or second class to the Lord. Likewise you couldn't sacrifice a deformed lamb to the Lord - He deserves the best you got, not what you just want to get rid of anyway.

It may also be a reaction against castrated priests, as occurred in some other religions.
