I suppose the correct answer to the OPs question that Peter should have
supplied would go something like this:

Yes, Tomcat should run the same on a 64-bit Windows installation so long
as the JVM used, and optionally the Windows service executable and
native-library dll, are all of the same architecture, either 32-bit or
64-bit.  You may pick whichever architecture you wish to run under, as
long as you understand the limits inherent in each.

How's that?

Careful; it's not the "bitness" of the OS that's important, it's the
"bitness" of the JVM that is the determining factor.  A 32-bit JVM
running on a 64-bit OS still requires the 32-bit native library.
