I'm glad it worked for you.
But the /etc/init.d/tomcat is probably not the best place.

If you look in /etc/init.d/tomcat, you'll see lines like

# overwrite settings from default file
if [ -f "$DEFAULT" ]; then

Basically what it means, is that there is a file /etc/default/tomcat5.5 
which is executed by the /etc/init.d/tomcat5.5 script, at boot and 
whenever your start Tomcat.
In that file is probably where you should set your Java parameters.

It will not change anything right now, but it will make a difference the 
day that you update Tomcat on your system.
