In this case he's going directly to Tomcat, so ProxyPass isn't really an
issue, since it isn't actually going through httpd or Nginx.

You can definitely proxy https connections.  If you're using ProxyPass,
that would be Apache httpd, and it requires a little extra configuration -
making sure https support is loaded for the mod_proxy module, and that
certificates are trusted and configured correctly - but it's definitely
doable.  I haven't configured it with Nginx, but I've no doubt it can also
proxy https connections in addition to plain http.

If you're using Apache and the IP does not work but hostname does, it is
likely an issue with the Apache httpd configuration, probably a virtual
host issue (missing virtual host mapping for the IP, missing /etc/hosts
entry for IP<->hostname, etc.).  There's no reason that accessing the IP
can't work, but it highly depends on how you have things configured.
