The openstreetmap infrastructure is only providing ssl for sensetive data like passwords. Map tiles are not considered sensetive enough to justify ssl. Read more of the discussion here.

Remember that osm is not aimed at delivering service to mappers and not to the end users but rather relies on external organisations to provide the service for the end user. You may have an easier time convincing MapQuest, MapBox or Bing to give you maps over ssl.

You could also run a proxy on your own server that translates your users' HTTPS requests to HTTP.

SSL is available on the a/b/c tile serving URLs since a couple of months.
