...and which coins currently have lightweight wallets such as Electrum and MultiBit for them?

Part of the reason why people keep their altcoins on exchanges is because it can be a huge hassle to download clients and blockchains for every single coin. Some coins like the CryptoNote coins also have very large blockchains because of the way they're designed.

I know Litecoin has Electrum-LTC and Dogecoin has MultiDoge and Electrum Doge. I think NXT and FIMKrypto also have a lightweight wallet built for them (Mofowallet?). Are there any other examples out there?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

Probably because there is only a handful of devs capable of porting mobile wallets to their coins. And those that are not are typically not willing to spend the money to get one made. Even if they do pay someone to make one, there's no guarantee that it will get done and done properly with adequate support. This space is so small when it comes to reliable devs and so full of scammers and big talkers that sometimes it can be hard to get anything done unless you are a very proficient coder yourself.
