Usually.  The -force option will invoke kill -9 on the Tomcat pid if Tomcat doesn't stop in
the specified time, which defaults to five seconds, but may be specified as an argument to
the shutdown.sh script.  If the pid can't be determined, -force has no effect.

Lots of things, including connections to other processes (e.g., database servers), flushing
of unwritten buffers to disk, how busy the system is, etc.
