This is possible, this is what is called a "reverse proxy" and it
allows one server to appear in the webspace of another.

In your case you could add the following to the webserver config of

ProxyPass  /pootle/ http://localhost:8080/
ProxyPassReverse /pootle/ http://localhost:8080/

The ProxyPassRevers statement is only needed if pootle generates
redirects. If pootle also generates pages with absolute links you
might have to mangle the html it produces, using mod_proxy_html, but
this is fairly advanced.
