(I'll assume there's a rather critical "not" missing from the last
clause in the above sentence.)

If the client refuses the certificate or otherwise breaks the connection
during the SSL negotiation, no servlet has been selected to receive the
message, so there's no one to deliver the exception to.  The servlet
spec doesn't seem to have any notion of container-oriented error pages,
so I think you're out of luck without custom code inside Tomcat.
