You need a modified cpe-oval. Simply change redhat-release to centos-release.

See the attached example, as pulled from the RHEL5 STIG.

We ran a couple different RHEL profiles on CentOS 6.4 virtual machine and received "not applicable" for all results.

That's the first time I've seen nonapplicable and I'm trying understand what it means. (I know it means not applicable, but I want to make sure we don't have a configuration issue set incorrectly.)

Here's what we ran:

oscap xccdf eval --profile DOD_baseline_1.0.0.1 --cpe dcb-rhel5_cpe-dictionary.xml --results result.xml --oval-results dcb-rhel5_xccdf.xml

Sample below.
