Its glaring omission (along with a few other titles like Crash Bandicoot etc) is weird indeed.
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe there were some leaks that showed TR1 as well as a few other games were originally intended to be included with the Playstation Classic, but for some reason weren't in the final version.

A quite decent alternative, provided you already own the game discs of course, is playing them through a PS1 emulator (for example ePSXe for Android/Windows). This enables rendering the games at a higher resolution than what you get from PS1/PS2/PS3/PSVita. I particularly recommed this if playing on a large modern display.
