Just like Chuck said:

Running from the console runs java.exe (or javaw.exe -- can't
remember). He probably said "Allow" at some point long ago to a pop-up
asking about java.exe accepting network connections.

Running as a service runs Tomcat7.exe and services probably never
pop-up anything asking for allowing incoming network connections, so
it remained blocked.

It's probably worth logging an enhancement request to (optionally)
configure the firewall when installing Tomcat as a service.
