qstat is not lying - you're cheating qstat ;)

In your machinefile you have



Therefore mpirun starts its slaves on tekla001 and so on.  You have to
generate a machinefile based on the selection SGE does for you.  All
information you need is in the env-variable $PE_HOSTFILE.

Generate machinefile dynamically in your jobscript like:

awk '{for (i=1; i<=$2; i++){print $1}}' $PE_HOSTFILE > machinefile
