Of course you can - you can define as many as you want via multiple <Connector> elements.

Now that would be massive overkill.

Much easier to define the two <Connector> elements in Tomcat, and then use the RemoteAddrValve
to control what is visible to each port:
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/config/valve.html#Remote%20Address%20Filter

However, the idea of separation by port is pretty much non-sensical.  Virtual hosting would
make slightly more sense:
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/virtual-hosting-howto.html

Regardless of the ports or virtual hosts, you must use the appropriate security mechanisms
to keep unwanted users from accessing the manager app.
