Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.
Heat preserves, ketchup, and chipotles in a saucepan over medium for the glaze; simmer 5 minutes. Stir in lime juice, season glaze with salt, then purée using a handheld blender; set aside ¼ cup for basting.
Brush both sides of potatoes with oil; season with salt and pepper. Grill potatoes, covered, 4 minutes per side; transfer to a bowl.
Add sour cream, butter, and jalapeño; coarsely crush with a potato masher. Stir in cilantro, season with salt and pepper, and cover potatoes to keep warm.
Reduce heat to medium-low.
Grill salmon, skin sides down, 4 minutes. Brush salmon with ¼ cup glaze and grill to desired doneness, or until a thermometer inserted into centers registers 140° for medium-well, 4–6 minutes more. Serve salmon with potatoes and remaining glaze.
