Your Tomcat server was stopping because the
process running it received a SIGHUP signal
when the login shell exited.  This behavior
is configurable and the setting is usually
governed by security policy since you might
not want to allow all users to launch processes
that continue after they logout.

Look at the man page for 'nohup' for more info.

BTW, 'ssh' is preferred over 'telnet' for security
