This is all I was asking you to check.  See the PARTUUID in the output
of blkid?  PARTUUID="14c4ac1d-abd8-4121-84ee-c05a825920de"
It matches the UUID of the boot entry:

I do see you have 4 separate boot entries for Linux (one oddly called
fedora despite using the CentOS shim), you might do well to narrow
them down to just one. 
(efibootmgr -B -b <bootnum>)

If your BIOS has the ability to choose to boot from a file, I suggest
giving that a try, and try both /EFI/centos/shim.efi and
/EFI/centos/grubx64.efi.  Perhaps one or the other isn't working
