Are you sure you have the right port address(8080), confirm you have the right port address in your server.xml doc located in the conf folder...

Before worrying about connecting Tomcat to Apache HTTPD, get everything up and running with Tomcat as a standalone app server. Then, if you still have a valid reason, look into connecting to HTTPD.

BTW: There is a forum dedicated to Apache Tomcat on this site.
You may find more people with experience in this area there.
