Well, there are several possible reasons:
.they are later additions to an original towerless building,
.they were originally designed like that or
.they were supposed to have two towers but the builders ran out of money, or interest, and they were left with just one tower.

I just googled and found that churches, in Brazil (probably in Portugal, too), didn't build the other tower to avoid paying taxes to Portugal. Some of them gave up finishing the tower (and until today some have the walls of the tower), because Portugal only charged taxes to finished churches.

In Brazil, there is this popular proverb: "Parece obra de igreja" (it looks like church work) to say that a building is taking so much time to finish.

Moreover, I found that a lot of churches were built with the members' donations and the tower was the last thing to be built: the money ran out.

Sources: here, here and here.

Is that true?

There are actually several sources stating that so, apparently, that is true for the baroque period in Brazil. Not sure about Portugal though.
