    This is because these lakes are so big that it is difficult to distinguish the surrounding landmass which is not clearly visible also. Only the horizon can be seen from a distance. They have larger surface area and most of the water is salty in nature.

    When long ago,when nearby people found that lakes they firstly thought it is a sea....because at at that time they never saw a sea ( i.e.how big sea is)or for their consideration those lakes are too big...thats why since that time we are pronouncing them as sea not as lakes...
