To echo Henning: They aren't.
But just to add some detailed clarification as to why not:
Remember that in logic we ask questions like: Does this claim follow from these other claims? Is this claim always (necessarily) true? Are these sentences consistent with each other? Now, all these questions can be boiled down to exploring logical possibilities:
Does this claim (conclusion) follow from these other claims (premises)? -> Is it possible for the premises to be true and the conclusion false?
Is this claim always (necessarily) true? -> Is it possible for this claim to be false?
Are these sentences consistent with each other? -> Is it possible for all of these sentences to be true?
What truth-tables do, is to effectively explore all possibilities by exploring all possible worlds: all different scenarios where the statements involved could be true or false. Each row represents such a world or scenario. And so, when we are asked to see if it is possible for a statement to be false, using a truth-table we would see if there is a row where it is false.
Now, this works beautifully for truth-functional (propositional/sententional) logic, since the level of analysis does not go any deeper than the level of atomic sentences, which themselves are true or false. This is why for a finite number of sentences, there are only a finite number of classes of possible worlds: one where all the atomic claims are all true, one where the are all false, one where ... well, you know the drill: with $n$ statements, you get $2^n$ possible classes of worlds to explore, i.e. $2^n$ rows in your truth-table
OK, but with predicate logic, this all changes. Here we go deeper, and analyze statements at the level of predicates and subjects, the latter being the objects that the quantifiers quantify over. Moreover, it turns out that the truth of these statements can easily depend on how many objects there are. So, if we are asked to consider all possible worlds, we immediately have to recognize that we would need to consider infinitely many worlds: one where there is 1 object, one where there are 2, etc. And that's not even considering all the ways in which those different objects have or not have certain properties, and how they may or may not be related to each other. So, a truth-table approach of trying to exhaustively go through all possible worlds can't work here.
