catkin_make is installed by default; catkin build is still in beta and is not installed by default.

Try this:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-catkin-tools

This has all been documented. In fact, the first Google result for "catkin tools install" is Installing catkin_tools.

As @ahendrix added: catkin_tools is not installed by default, so you'll have to do that manually.
