If you have a Linux box and like to keep your installed programs nice and
tidy using the RPM program then rpms are essential unless there is another
program used for managing installation of program from tar/tgz/tar.gz
archives? 

I run SuSE v8.0 & 8.1 and there was a kb article that said to use a program
called /sbin/installpkg for installing ".tgz" packages but I have never seen
this nor am I sure that "tar.gz" is the same as ".tgz"

Guidance?

Actually, the release builds have moved to a new scenario, basically the
same as Apache HTTP.  Tomcat release binaries are available from various
mirror sites.  On any given mirror, there are only /bin and /src, and in
/bin there are the full versions and the LE versions.  I think RPMs went
away with 4.1.17, though I could be wrong.

In any case, you can find pre-4.1.18 RPMs here:

http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-tomcat-4.0/archives/

On that note, there's no need for an RPM for Tomcat, in my opinion.  The
only thing a RPM adds (AFAIK) is the creation of a tomcat user and the
installation of a start/stop init script.  Both tasks are easily completed
manually, leaving just the need for the binaries themselves.
