<exec executable> specifies what command to run.

<exec dir> specifies where the command should be run. But it does NOT
specify where the executable should be found.

You could try <exec resolveexecutable|searchpath>.

BUT *.sh are not commands that could be run by the operating system.
These
files are run by a command shell.
http://ant.apache.org/faq.html#batch-shell-execute

Try
  <exec executable="sh">
    <arg value="-c"/>
    <arg value="${TOMCAT}/bin/shutdown.sh"/>
  </exec>
