I ran a webapp for years in  64MiBheap (of course, there is also
non-heap memory consumed) with plenty of room to shrink and grow
before our user needs exceeded that fairly modest heap.

Tomcat itself is unlikely to be the source of your memory usage. The
JVM plus the webapp are going to be much heavier unless the webapp is
trivial.
