If a Tesla can coast down a 5 mile hill, why can't it be towed?

I would guess that Tesla could make a software version that powers the electronics for towing and uses the energy generated to either charge the battery, or uses the energy to keep the battery from discharging.

But either way, there would be energy absorbed by the car rolling which would result in more power being used by the towing vehicle.
