Of course it is. Each web app is termed a "context". The Tomcat docs and the Servlet Spec explain it all in great detail.

Just upload your war files to the webapp directory.

The name of the war file will become the context root.

So, on my website, www.scja.com, I upload a file named associate.war to the webapps directory of Tomcat, and tomcat deploys the application. I can then access my webapp through

http://www.scja.com/associate

I also have a war file named thesimpsons.war which I deploy to the same server. It's another web app. But once in the webapps directory, you can access the landing page through:

http://www.scja.com/thesimpsons/index.jsp

So, this is just a simple, live example, of multiple war files being deployed to a single tomcat server.
