Supply line rough in question
 
While doing some plumbing work on my tub I noticed they ran two hot and two cold supply lines. The connect at a 90 degree.

Is this normal I've never seen it, what is the purpose?

If you are slab-on-grade, then those supply lines might be branching off back under the slab to pick up another fixture or two.

continuing supply loops flexible copper is used with no solder joints below the slab, all connections are soldered above the slab. as Joe P stated ..just added my two cents.

Yep, appears to be a simple loop with a tee in it. You don't want joints under the slab so you loop up above the floor
