This is standard JVM behavior.  The JVM rarely shrinks the heap, and if
and when it does, shrinkage is only possible as part of a full garbage
collection.

Sounds like you actually need to read up on JVM heap usage; Tomcat
doesn't do its own management.  This is a reasonable introduction:

Look at the section on Garbage Collection under HotSpot VM Architecture.
