Under the default install configuration you are hitting the httpd part
of tomcat (standalone) when going to 8080 not apache at all.

To get apache to use tomcat when it needs it you should Include
the tomcat-apache.conf file or tomcat.conf file or a copy of one of
(depending on exactly what behaviour you want) into your httpd.conf
file.  You should not have to edit your httpd.conf file at all 
other than to include one of these files. These files are a pre-build
conf additions needed to run tomcat through apache.
