I don't think the Tomahawk is able to carry a weapon capable of taking out a concrete runway. They would need fixed wing aircraft carrying specialized bombs to do that. Maybe no stealthy machines available and didn't want to risk losing an aircraft and its crew captured.
It shouldn't be a matter of weight, the French Matra Durandal weighs less than the payload of a Tomahawk cruise missile.
