Haggis is correct, installing python-deltarpm should fix your issue. If you are missing a package and don't know what it is called, you can search for it by replacing deltarpm in the following command with the name of the package you wish to search for.

yum search all deltarpm

That said, how did you install createrepo? If you installed it from the repository yum should have installed, deltarpm, python-deltarpm, libxml2-python, and possibly a few other packages for you automatically.
