I was encountering the same issue as Robert and your working theory sounds quite reasonable.
I'm in a virtualized
environment, too. In my case it is XenServer and the problem occurs only directly after booting.
When I manually execute
systemctl start tomcat
everything is fine. That fits to the entropy thing.

In my case it wasn't systemd killing tomcat but jsvc. By default jsvc waits only 10 seconds.
After configuring
in, everything is fine now.

Thanks for your heads up.
