Nope.

If you use the Tomcat startup scripts, the shell is responsible for
output redirection. Hacking that to pipe-through an external program
(eg. chronolog, etc.) is possible but makes the scripts very complicated
.

If you want to rotate stdout/stderr logs, you should use jsvc or some
other service-runner; they will know how to rotate those files. For
example, jsvc can rotate those files when it receives a signal.
