Actually I think it may work in reverse. The detailed impression they get can be hard to put into words. I think an Si type may have an inclination to have vocabulary developed around slight differences of impressions, but I don't think they'll always be able to explain it better. They probably find them selves struggling to find the right word more often than others which is what would cause them to develop that more intricate vocabulary.
Edit: basically, I think that an intricate vocabulary of sensual details will be roughly proportional to the level of awareness of the focus on the sensual details, but the amount they struggle with it will vary from person to person.

My SEI brother isn't very good at describing something. So I'll try it and say something like, "It has the oomph of a caterpillar with a hint of orange." He'll excitedly say, "Exactly!"

As for why... for anyone who's learned another language, the goal is to start thinking in that language. So say if you're learning Latin, you don't look at a frog and see a frog, you see a rana. It's like that for me, my vocabulary for sensory things is in a sensory language, not English. So unless I have an English name for something, or the things that make a something up (eg most smells can be compared to other smells), I will describe it in my mind with other sensory things.
Taste and smell are the worst offenders, possibly because they're the most complex senses.
