Unfortunately, this does not really clarify things.

Some things, which may be relevant or not, depending on your configuration :
- Tomcat does not care at all about .htaccess; that is purely "an Apache httpd thing".
   (In other words, you cannot make Tomcat be "aware" of .htaccess)
- Usually, it is a bad idea to share the same application directories between Apache httpd

and Tomcat
- Usually also, when Apache httpd and Tomcat work together, this is done via a 
"connector", and it may be possible at that level to do something about .htaccess.

But you are not telling us anything about your configuration, OS, setup etc.. so it is 
difficult to help.
Main thing here : how are Apache httpd and Tomcat connected to eachother ?
