I have a Centos 8.4 VM, currently comparable to RedHat 8.4, until such time as Rocky Linux supercedes it.

The following package versions are listed on my VM following the latest dnf updates.
$ dnf list | egrep -e "^(apr|apr-util|httpd|pcre2).x86_64"
apr.x86_64                                                        1.6.3-11.el8                                      @appstream
apr-util.x86_64                                                   1.6.1-6.el8                                       @appstream
httpd.x86_64                                                      2.4.37-39.module_el8.4.0+950+0577e6ac.1           @appstream
pcre2.x86_64                                                      10.32-2.el8                                       @BaseOS 

Apart from PCRE2, these match the versions you've listed, and predictably Apache runs fine on this platform.

I've not tried to install Tomcat, but see no reason why any published release should be a problem, provided you've installed the appropriate JDK. It is after all Java.

Equally I've not seen an RPM for the Tomcat Connectors module, so you'll most likely need to build that from source. It needs apxs, so you'll need to install the 'httpd-devel' package to get that.
