Why are all symmetry groups of regular polytopes are finite Coxeter groups?

Because they are reflection groups, and Coxeter proved in
and in this paper in the following year that symmetries of polytopes are among the finite reflection groups.
Check out either of those two articles: Coxeter is generally easy to read.
