One of Hamlet's main problems is that he cannot seem to get up the emotion or the necessary spirit to carry out the revenge he feels so strongly that he must carry out. He knows that his father was murdered and he grows more and more sure of his uncle Claudius being behind the whole thing.
So he is ashamed of his own inaction when he sees the way the actors are moved to tears over this entirely false production of Hector and Priam. He sees their tears and their seemingly real emotion and wonders why he feels nothing of the sort due to his very real problems.
