From the manual page (auctex) Fontification of math:

In order to make math constructs more readable, font-latex displays subscript and superscript parts in a smaller font and raised or lowered respectively. This fontification feature can be controlled with the variables 'font-latex-fontify-script' and 'font-latex-script-display'.

You can turn this off by customizing the variablefont-latex-fontify-script to nil.
