A couple things to check:

Verify that you have (either in your profile or manually) typed "export 
JAVA_HOME".  This will make the environment variable available inside 
other scripts, such as the Tomcat start/stop script.

If you are starting Tomcat under a different user account (root?), the 
environment variable needs to be set under that account.
