Why does iPhoto have to convert RAW files to JPEG?

Remember that RAW is a reference or “digital negative” format; not a working format. In other words, you can’t print directly from a RAW file, for example. Furthermore, other programs, such as iMovie and System Preferences, do not understand RAW. That’s why iPhoto makes a JPEG copy of your RAW image at the time of import.
