The contacts inside a 15 amp plug and a 20 amp outlet are the same size.  The only difference is that the 20 amp plug rotates one of the spades 90 degrees.  This is useful when you have something that NEEDS a 20 amp draw, it prevents you from plugging it into a 15 amp circuit.

To be honest the cabling feeding the plug could also only be rated for 15A regardless of if the amp is rated for 15/20A.
