how has having a tough, leathery mouth helped a camel adapt to living in the desert?

Ability to eat anything, including the thorns which are often the only thing around.

I'm not a biologist so i'm just makeing an educated guess here. I know a lot of animals loose their water throught their mouths similar to the way people sweat. So if the camel has a tough leathery dry mouth then it could help him from loosing water in the heat.

Can eat tough prickly food, reduced loss of water.
