You can't.  The list of categories is intended to give a very simple indicator to users about the lifecycle of an issue, and adding more quickly ends up duplicating the detail that status gives you.

Atlassian have said they're not going to change this.  See https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-36241 - while there's a lot of comments saying "we want", I can't actually find a decent justification for adding more categories (although I totally agree with the comments about colours and most of the ones about where the category is used and how it's reported)
