To follow the tutorial which also talk about user name token authentication, which you may leave out just use the SSL part.
You will need to edit the META-INF/services.xml in server to add these policy. Here Your concern should be which defines ssl, you can remove the which is used for user name token.
I just followed the tutorial as I mentioned earlier. I did not change the axis2.xml for enabling SSL. Also make sure that you enable SSL in tomcat server.xml. You probably need to add rampart jars and modules in your classpath. If you are using rampart also add it to the services.xml in both the places and key store definitions . I used axis 1.5 and rampart 1.5 and it worked.
