It seems like you're going through a lot of unnecessary work & headaches
to put httpd in front of Tomcat; if you don't have some other pressing
need, why not just run Tomcat standalone?  It handles SSL quite nicely.

Then simply deploy your application as ROOT.

You laboring under a misconception - the only ROOT application in Tomcat
is its default welcome page; manager, admin, the examples, etc., are all
deployed as independent applications and are still available even if
ROOT has been replaced.

You're going through a lot (a whole lot) more work than you need to.
