Where did you get this Tomcat ? is it the RedHat package, or a "real 
Tomcat" that you downloaded from and installed yourself ?

If it is a "real Tomcat" (as Chuck would say), then probably your 
problems come from mixing up a RedHat startup script, with a non-RedHat 
Tomcat package.  The RedHat startup command "service" probably makes a 
number of assumptions about where files are, how to set up the 
environment, etc.., which your real Tomcat does not like.
