Apache = Apache Software Foundation. This is the legal organization which
has all the wonderful bureaucracy in setting up rules for
software development and making sure projects adhere to various countries

Tomcat - Actually Apache Tomcat - the implementation of the servlet spec. A
project in the Apache software foundation.

Apache web server - Also know has Apache httpd - the original project which
begat the the Apache software foundation. Many times when Apache is
mentioned, the speaker will imply Apache httpd.

That being said ...
Apache Tomcat and Apache httpd are 2 different products with their own
different methods of installation. You may also use Apache Tomcat without
needing Apache httpd. The Tomcat FAQ has some more details about that.
