You would have to turn off (comment out) all the Logger elements in your
server.xml.  That means all logging output will go to standard out,
which by default is $CATALINA_HOME/logs/catalina.out.  That file is not
rotated or time-stamped, so maybe that will fit your logging policy

If you want to keep using the Tomcat Loggers, you can't control the
rollover behavior.  You'd have to extend FileLogger into a customized
version.  See the Logger configuration reference page at
