Because something flying so low at 500 mph is only visible for maybe a second before it is gone so it is impossible to fire. And that is assuming it flies over you. A plane at 15000 feet is visible for an eternity in comparison. The only way to see the tomahawk is from above and that capability is far beyond the Syrians imo.
Edit in fact planes can fly lower than Tomahawks
