माता-पिता functions as a compound word of its own in Hindi that takes on the general meaning of 'parents'. Similar compound words are दादा-दादी (paternal grandparents), नाना-नानी (maternal grandparents), भाई-बहन (siblings) etc.
If you connect the words with the conjunction 'and' instead, you are free to use any word order - माता और पिता (mother and father) or पिता और माता (father and mother). You'd be more likely to माँ instead of the more formal माता in such usage though.
