I know that it does not answer your question, but may I ask why ?
If you already do the user authentication in the front-end Apache httpd, can you not do a

"role-equivalent" check there too, before you proxy the call to Tomcat ?
<Location /manager>
   Require group manager
   ProxyPass ajp://tomcat:8009
(and remove the Tomcat auth constraints)

(Not sure it's so easy, but may be worth a try)
