Not just can, but *must*.  The same applies to the docBase attribute -
it's only pertinent when your <Context> element is in some place other
than META-INF/context.xml.  The presence of inappropriate attributes may
lead to inappropriate behavior.

Both the docBase and path attributes should be removed.  Also, you don't
really need workDir, since Tomcat will provide one for you the value of
which you can retrieve from the ServletContext.

Mostly just by removing them.

If you just remove the unnecessary attributes from the <Context>
element, I think you'll have achieved that goal.
