Uh, oh. It sounds like you're using a re-packaged version of Tomcat. Can
you specify your environment?

If you are using, say, Debian's Tomcat package, then the definition of
CATALINA_BASE/webapps/ROOT becomes somewhat muddled. You might have to
use, instead, something like /var/www/webapps/ROOT or whatever setup
Debian's Tomcat package demands. You'll have to read the documentation
for your package maintainer's version of Tomcat, or hope someone on the
list knows how to configure it and happens to read this thread.

This is the danger of running package-managed versions of Tomcat instead
of the official package: readers on this list can rarely help because
each package is configured completely differently.

I hope that helps,
