That looks like rrdtool has been updated (from version 1.2.x, shipping
librrd*.so.2, to version 1.3.x, shipping librrd*.so.4) without taking
care of its reverse dependencies. In this case, a simple rebuild of
collectd in CentOS should do, since collectd does not use any part of
the API that has changed between soname versions 2 and 4. Possibly
CentOS still provides older librrd* packages as well - I don't know how
this is usually handled in CentOS.

Anyway, I think it's appropriate to report a bug against the collectd
package in CentOS asking for a rebuild against librrd_th.so.4.
