It's clear that something is broken, here.

Is it possible that upgrading the 32-bit version /second/ may have set
the default JRE to the 32-bit version, and you are trying to use
64-bit components for everything else?

web.xml does not specify .jar files... so, what did you do, exactly?

Can you check your tomcat6w.exe configuration (run the program; look
at the configuration) to see what JRE you have selected when the
[procrun] service starts?

I would also highly recommend at some point (after you have resolved
this particular issue) that you upgrade Tomcat to at least 7.0.21 --
7.0.6 was a looong time ago.
