Why doesn't Miles hold a grudge against Dom for Mal's death?

We don't know for sure.  However, it is likely that likely that Miles simply accepts Cobb's explanation that Mal's death was a suicide.  It is not clear to what extent Miles knows or suspects that the suicide was an unfortunate side effect of dream sharing, but he seems to regard Cobb as someone who suffered a loss, not as a perpetrator.

Miles may feel just as guilty or more so, since he was once an architect and taught Cobb to be one. In addition, Cobb does not try to blame Mal for what happened, but is torturing himself over her death. It makes Miles' guilt (if he feels some) difficult to get over when he sees how it has affected his son in law.
