Is there any reason the valide sultan was paid more than the sultan?
I have no idea but it was something accepted and not at all peculiar:
This 1:3 ratio between the stipends of the sultan and his mother is the same as that between Süleyman's princely stipend in Manisa and the stipend of his mother Hafsa, suggesting that it may have been a standard multiplier within the dynastic family. — Leslie P. Peirce, The Imperial Harem: Women and Sovereignty in the Ottoman Empire
Peirce explains like this the enormous difference between Hafsa's and Suleyman's stipends when they were in Manisa:
At Süleyman's court in Manisa, his mother, Hafsa Khatun, received a monthly stipend of 6,000 aspers, the highest stipend of anyone on the princely payroll and triple that of the prince himself. This monetary differential was symbolic of the fact that the prince's mother was present in his court as a representative of the senior generation.
I guess the Valide Sultan's stipend was higher because it was supposed to finance building projects as well:
It was the prince's mother, as the elder member of the household, who enjoyed the privilege of adorning the provincial capital: until the late sixteenth century, when Murad III built a mosque complex in Manisa. the city's two most prominent mosque complexes were those built by Hüsnüşah Khatun and Hafsa Khatun — Peirce, The Imperial Harem
