What server are you on? The amount of a class you see while leveling doesn't necessarily reflect their popularity overall. Additionally, most players level as dps and switch to the tank/heal spec around 50, so that may be why you don't see many shield spec PT's running around.

As to Powertechs themselves, they are probably one of the strongest classes right now, whether tank or dps in both PVE and PVP. You'd be hard pressed to find a group who would deny bringing a PT along.

I do know that at launch Powertechs were rare since most BH's wanted to be a Merc. Two pistols versus shield = lame to most new players. Same situation with Commandos and Vanguards (giant cannon vs regular rifle). With the F2P launch this may be happening again.
