You're running into one of the known limitations of 2FA and SourceTree at the moment. Currently, SourceTree will use SSH to do most everything with Bitbucket except build a list of repositories. There is an open feature request here to allow application specific passwords, this would allow SourceTree to use that set of credentials and get the list of repositories. Until then, you'll need to manually add the repositories into SourceTree as it's not possible to authenticate with SourceTree to Bitbucket once 2FA is turned on.

This is explained in a bit more detail on the Two-step verification documentation.
