No, this shouldn't be a problem if you setup tomcat correctly.

http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-4.1-doc/proxy-howto.html
(Note: I havn't tried it on my own)


Most documentation that I found about the configuration of tomcat 
for running as non root on port < 1024 are missing this point:
http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/java/library/l-secjav.htm
http://www.klawitter.de/tomcat80.html

Here is one in german that includes this topic:
http://3plus4software.de/news/20020617.html
(Even without understanding german, you should be able
to find the relevant information)
