Not if you use jsvc. Documented at 
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/setup.html

"jsvc has other useful parameters, such as -user which causes it to 
switch to another user after the daemon initialization is complete. This 
allows, for example, running Tomcat as a non privileged user while still 
being able to use privileged ports."
