The reason for this is that having text that is nominally part of the page but you can't see it, seems pointless and confusing. I'm afraid you'll have to delete the surplus text manually. If you want to fill the frame with Lorem Ipsum, then use Text > Insert Filler Text and it will adjust dynamically to fit the frame.

thank you very much the "Insert Filler Text"  was very useful  :)

I can't see a native way to do this.

 

You can work around the issue by drawing a rectangle, with snapping on so that it is the same size as the text frame, and dragging this in the layers panel to become a mask.

 

The mask even seems to resize correctly with the text frame - so actually quite a good method!
