I think you need to ask the RedHat support people what they have done 
with the Tomcat and Java packages.  Nobody here will be able to tell you.

Note : this is not ill-will, nor some principled stance against 
pre-packaged Tomcat's and Java's.  It's just that these pre-packaged 
versions usually split the Java and Tomcat files over umpteen 
directories, set up myriads of symlinks to make it all work, and have 
their own init.d startup scripts adapted to that setup.
They have their good reasons to do that, but it's just almost impossible 
to help you without having the same system at hand.

I would just offer one recommendation : since you are using the RedHat 
packages and tools, it should be easy to de-install the Java and Tomcat 
packages, then re-install them.  Re-install Java first, and verify that 
"which java" and "java -version" really show you the version you just 
Then re-install Tomcat, and check if things are better.
The point is, with these installs, if just one symlink is missing 
somewhere, that could mess up the whole thing.
