I'll soften Andre's response slightly: "probably".  ArcIMS might
require some Java 1.4isms that are not in 1.6, or may rely on
unsupported behaviour in Tomcat 4.1 that behaves a different way in
6.0.  There's also a strong chance that if they tell you to change
some configuration options in Tomcat, those options will be slightly
different in Tomcat 6.0.

Do you *need* Apache httpd?  What are you using it for?  If the
configuration is just forwarding everything to Tomcat, you may well
save yourself a lot of time and grief by removing httpd and mod_jk,
and just serving all content out of Tomcat.  A lot depends on ArcIMS.
