Because territories that are bombarded by your catapults are not considered to be connected to the catapults. Only attackable territories are considered to be connected. For this reason the only place you would be able to fort your catapult guys to would be to the nearest Trebuchet, should you have taken it that turn and own it.
For this map, it would be nearly pointless to do so though, since you would just lose all your guys. Catapults are primarily used for helping you take back your castle area once someone has attacked you and failed to completely remove you from the area. They're also used for bombarding your opponents bonuses through the trebuchets, which often there is little to no point in doing until the catapults have accumulated a dozen or two troops on them.
