Unless Samsung are complete muppets, even they don't know your password: all they know is a special hashed form of the password, which is an irreversible function a bit like encrypting it. When you type in your password, they hash what you type in in the same way, and then compare the two hashed passwords. This way, they can check your password without knowing what it is.

For this reason, there shouldn't be any way to find out what your password is without first changing it. If that turns out not to be true, it would be a very embarrassing security problem for Samsung.

If you want to find a lost or stolen phone, there are other options that don't involve your Samsung account. See the answers to My phone was just stolen an hour or so ago. Are there any options for tracking? for some alternatives that you can install remotely via Google Play.
