Because in Tomcat to browser communciation Tomcat is acting as the
server and Tomcat includes code to pass the certificate to the client in

When you write a servlet that calls a web service, your servlet is
acting as a client and you have to hand code the SSL aspects in the same
way as every other aspect of the web service client.
