Configuring an FTP server under some Linux OS in order to allow the uploading of files to

a directory, and doing this securely, is not exactly the purpose of this list.
You would better served asking on the help list of your Linux distribution.

However, if your purpose is to be able to deploy new/updated Tomcat applications from a 
remote location, and you can load your applications as war-files, then you do not 
necessarily need FTP, and could do this via the Tomcat Manager application.
Under some Linux(es), this may be a separate package to install, e.g. with Debian there 
are these packages for Tomcat 5.5 :
tomcat5.5 - Servlet and JSP engine
tomcat5.5-admin - Java Servlet engine -- admin & manager web interfaces
tomcat5.5-webapps - Java Servlet engine -- documentation and example web applications
where the 2d one would be the one you need.
There must be the same available for Tomcat 6.0.x, but not on my system right now.

Here is the documentation :
