Well, maybe.  Remember the manager application is talking about
the /manager web application and not only the /manager/html
functionality. (And I was quite sloppy with my response above,
as I should have said "Manager Application HTML Interface")
Sorry for adding to the confusion.

It probably needs further highlighting on the actual web
application to assist people in not confusing themselves. ;-)

The deploy task takes a war file and places that in a "special
place" using the HTTP PUT. It's simply not possible from
a web page.

This is all described quite well in the documentation:

Have a look in the section "Deploy a New Application" and
read the big "NOTE:" section.
