The version in Debian 7 is from 2013, because Debian 7 was released in 2013. Debian Stable never changes versions. If there are security issues the Debian security team will backport the fixes to the version in use. You can get newer versions either by using Debian Testing or Unstable, or by backporting the newer version yourself, if possible.

You could install the latest one from source, but the better way is to backport the software, creating a proper Debian package: https://wiki.debian.org/SimpleBackportCreation
I am curious, what do you want to achieve with upgrading OpenSSL?
