Do you have any sources for this? I am running a Tor Exit vserver on
my root server there, get abuse complaints (sometimes a couple a day,
sometimes one a week), answer everytime to the complainer and to
hetzner that it's a Tor server and didn't have any problems yet. But
it's not running that long yet (~2 months).
I also asked hetzner support yesterday, they answered me that its
neither forbidden in their terms of services nor in their system
policies, and to their knowledge it doesn't conflict with german law,
so it's perfectly fine with them.

(german quote for german readers: "In den AGB und System Policies ist
in Sachen Tor nichts zu finden. Und soweit uns bekannt ist verstößt
TOR auch nicht gegen Deutsches Recht. Von daher sollte sich die Frage
eruebrigt haben.").
