Officially, yes.

It is possible that you could grab the catalina-ant.jar from 4.1.x, and
run it against a 4.0.x installation, and some of the commands might
actually work (i.e. those cases where 4.0 has the same Manager Webapp
commands and syntax that 4.1 has).  However, it's never been tested and
you are totally on your own.

What would help the Tomcat community more would be to have everyone hammer
on the 4.1.x test releases and help us find the bugs, so we can get the
thing released sooner rather than later.  :-)
