The above may be a bit concise, so I'll elaborate a bit.
It seems, from the rather incomplete information you supplied 
originally, that you may have not only an Apache HTTPD server, but also 
a Tomcat servlet engine in the background.  It also sounds like the page 
you are seeing may be actually generated by Tomcat, not by the Apache 
httpd server.
The styles of the Apache httpd and Tomcat server error pages are quite 
different, so it should be easy to tell visually from where it comes.

To provide you with more precise help, it would be useful if you posted 
some additional details about the platform you are running this on, 
whether the is an Apache and a Tomcat or not, their versions, etc..

Tomcat is a piece of software that also "belongs" to the larger family 
of Apache projects, so a message indicating "Apache Tomcat" means in 
reality "Apache family, Tomcat module".
But the Apache httpd server was the first project in the family, so its 
message usually say just "Apache".
And I hope I have not confused you further with all this.
