I'm not exactly sure what you mean by this.  Can you elaborate?  

If you are referring to accepting incoming HTTP requests via HTTPS,
there is nothing special that needs to be done.  

You would just configure Apache HTTPD to accept incoming HTTPS requests.
It would handle the encryption and then proxy the requests to the
appropriate node in your cluster.

Ex (ASCII graphic, hope it displays OK):

                                     ----> Tomcat Node 1
            (HTTPS)                  |
 Client --------------> Apache HTTPD ----> Tomcat Node 2
                                     |
                                     ----> Tomcat Node N
