I think it's because the Empire has real officers, wearing their fancy tunics and hats for their uniform. Only low-ranking officers like sergeants and lieutenants still have to wear the armor. With the huge clone army with everyone, even commanders, all dressed in armor, it'd be impossible to sort through the ranks, which is why they were given color-coded armor.
