If the above class is just an interface, how is it that I can specify javax.sql.DataSource in tomcat's server.xml file as follows

I'm not an expert with the tomcat config files but from what I know the Resource tag specifies a resource to be stored/available from a JNDI lookup. Just like in RMI, the type of the object returned is the type of the interface that the object implements.
hope that helps

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
