Taking your question strictly as phrased, I don't think so, because the 
mod_jk/Tomcat AJP protocol is not encrypted.
If you really needed to do this, you could use an SSH tunnel however.
If you really needed to and the physical constraints allow it, you could 
also link your Apache with the back-end Tomcat with a dedicated LAN, and 
avoid the overhead of SSL.
