I think that it is a bit more complicated that that.
A .bat file compiled to a .exe will still not work properly as a Windows service.

The standard Tomcat installation for Windows does it right, by providing a correct 
"service wrapper" for the JVM which runs Tomcat.
The OP would probably, in the end, save himself some time by installing a proper 
Tomcat-as-a-Windows-service from the Tomcat website, and then arrange for Netbeans to talk

to that one.
