Ha ! then I stand corrected, and sorry for my above rambling.
Ok then, maybe one of the helpful Tomcat experts here will be able to 
help after all.  Not me, I'm afraid.

Maybe you *could* try the yum version then ?  that one is almost 
guaranteed to start on your system. ;-)
10..9..8..  (countdown for me this time until someone here reacts to 
that heretical suggestion)

Maybe a less heretical suggestion :
- install the yum package
- save it's /etc/init.d/tomcat6 startup script
- de-install the yum package
- restore the saved /etc/init.d/tomcat6 script and modify it according 
to your "real tomcat" locations

Maybe at least you'll spot the differences.
