The point of the game is to kill as much as you can with limited supplies. If they dropped ammo and health then a skilled player would be able to survive indefinatly if he was lucky enough to get enough health drops. Usually the sword is enough to kill mandagores and beasts without taking damage anyway.

Speaking of ammo, if you have ammo left at the end of a night, is it carried over to the next night?

So it is. This is a good idea to give ammo. Because if you are skillful enough to go on, so this ammo will be pretty handy. And in DiabloRL and in DoomRL there were bonus ammo. And the mode is so called : ENDLESS

Yes, it is. You also get some additional supplies for the next day, so that conserving stuff is easier.

If you are skillful enough, you'll make it without additional knives, bombs, powder and other stuff. And that's the point of the game.

Actually the point of the game is to die eventually, but take as much of them with you as posible ;).

Still, if you're given extra ammo for killing monsters, you're breaking the spirit of the game. You're supposed to have few resources, and with those resources, you must be as much of a challenge for the monsters until you finally fall. If monsters drop ammo... Then you no longer have few resources.
