It's done to preserve the pilots night vision while in the landing phase. Never heard of the lights being turned out though. The same could be achieved by closing all the window blinds but logistically, dimming the lights is easier.

Why do passenger aircraft landing at night turn down the cabin
lights during landing (or in my case last night - OUT - very
disconcerting for those of a nervous disposition)?
