Because you're getting more mines, which equals more damage.
I don't know the numbers off the top of my head (at work, can't check), but if THY1 increases your torpedo damage by 50% it's like getting 1.5 torpedos when its used. If Mine Dispersal gives you 4 extra mines (above the 5), you're getting 1.8 mines when you use it, or, 180% of the normal damage potential. So, you can get more total overall damage, but the balancing factor is that mines can be shot down.
