Why don't they use phpBB software for the Forums?

The WordPress developers have chosen to use the bbPress software over phpBB because they developed bbPress. bbPress is a bare-bones, fast, forum system, and is a work-in progress. It supports registered users, categorization, tags, topic history, resolved/un-resolved status, and a search engine (when properly implemented).
