As Paul said tile.osm.org is using a local copy of the files from the 
old system that is only updated manually and irregularly.

Andy and I were talking about this last week and were of the opinion 
that we should switch to using your data, and to using sea polygons with 
land as the default background rather than the current system, and I 
think Andy would happily take a patch against openstreetmap-carto which 
did that.
