It's basically because tyres are the first and most effective part of your
suspension - if they're at too high a pressure, they can really mess around
with the rest of your setup, because it's very easy to chase your tail trying
to solve harshness and grip issues by adjusting the suspension only to later
find out your tyres were at 40psi and no amount of suspension was going to be
able to compensate for that, at least not without severe compromise elsewhere.
Tyre pressure should basically be set as low as you can go before you get
noticeable tyre squirm when cornering, or start flatting more often than
you're willing to tolerate. There isn't really any benefit to running it much
higher than that unless maybe you're on a race course where rolling resistance
is a big deal.
