Could be the Romulan/Klingon battle was privileged information. Remember, Pike was surprised Kirk knew about it. Starfleet's a big organization. It is not inconceivable for the left hand and the right hand not to be on the same page.
Yet Pike wasn't smart enough to connect "lightning storm" to "badass Romulan ship", when he himself wrote a thesis about the Kelvin incident. And yeah, Starfleet would hide the information about a massive attack in the Neutral Zone when Vulcan is sending a distress call (and they did think events in the Neutral Zone and Vulcan might be connected).
Kirk's the hero of this film. Pike isn't. Kirk gets to put the pieces of the puzzle together. Pike gets to be captured. Thats how these things work.
