The first question here is : where does that tomcat 7.0.81 come from ?
If it is the "vanilla" tomcat from the tomcat website, then chances are that we can help 
you. If it is from a centos packaged version of tomcat, then there are less chances that 
we can help you, because we do not know exactly how the packagers of centos have set this

You probably need to start in that case by looking at the startup script(s) of tomcat, in

/etc/init.d or similar, to find out what happens in terms of redirection of logfiles etc.

The people who create the tomcat packaged versions for the different Linux/Unix/Windows 
etc. distributions, each have their own logic about this kind of thing. Their intent is 
usually to try to "force" the tomcat logging to happen according to the general 
conventions on their particular platform, which can be quite different from the standard 
logging conventions of the various pieces of software that should run on each platform.
