Well, the holes are drilled perpendicular to the length-adjustment screws, I'm sure.
You get that angle by raising the height of the saddles.
I've got some of the later steel saddles with the string grooves in them -- not the threaded ones.

I have some that I believe are from a '54 Tele I foolishly sold years ago. Yes, the height screws are angled away---not perpendicular to the intonation screw. I haven't really thought about selling them.

Not positive but would hazard an opinion that the angled height adjustment was not done on purpose. when mfg in milling machine or other dril mechanism, a slight offset from top center of the cylinder surface of saddle results in the height adjust being angled vs. perpendicular to the intonation screw. I often have this experience in own machine shop when mfg saddles, if not careful, or if table moves a small amount - results in angled height screw
If you are doing a restoration and must have steel with slight angle, contact me direct and I can mfg for you,
not trying to use the TDPRI for commercial use just willing to help a telenut in distress. My saddles are commercially available elsewhere, and are used by a couple of major tele players.
