It probably has everything to do with the fact that Zelda is just a port of the Wii U version and adding HD rumble to such a massive game might have delayed the game so it wouldn't make launch. (Just my guess of course)
BUT Square Enix is already taking advantage of HD rumble for Dragon Quest Heroes I & II, where hitting a slime will have a more jelly like feel vs hitting a rock which will vibrate more. That too me sounds awesome, granted this may not get released outside of Japan, but they've been pretty good with releasing all those 3DS DQ games.
