Not sure why he had two instances for HTTPS vs HTTP. 
Apache filters out the encryption and passes off to
Tomcat, so you should only have had to have Apache
with the certificate installed, one tomcat instance
(or multiple workers for session sharing), and there
you go.  Bad configuration.

Yes if you are not going to use any Apache modules for
anything it is a good option to just use Tomcat.  I
have a server running pure Tomcat, and I've had no
problems, though once you have the connector and SSL
setup for Apache there really isn't anything different
from a plain install.  What problems have you had
