You could try editing Tomcat's logging config file. In standalone Tomcat 6.0.29 it is at config/logging.properties.

I do not know of any way to tell Eclipse to redirect its Console output to a file, which is why I suggested modifying a Tomcat config file. And as far as i can tell, there is no Tomcat built into Eclipse - when you created a Tomcat server you had to point Eclipse at a Tomcat installed on your system. At least, that is what I have to do. Unless you have some Eclipse plugin that comes with Tomcat. But even then, you should be able to find the config files and change them.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
