Well, I found the solution, but I am a little puzzled...

The proxy has to be defined using https:// instead of http://

Yum could suppose himself that proxy is HTTPS aware and could try to
connect the proxy using the CONNECT command instead of trying this
insane "GET https://..."

Hope this will help someone else facing the same problem a day !
