First, do an

su

to switch to root.  It'll ask you for a password.

Then, for most flavors (you'll probably have to check), you can just give the command

reboot

However, your putty session will get disconnected as the server is going down.

Basically, you need Tomcat to start automatically on boot.  I think you can do this by adding a line to /etc/init.d, but I'm really not sure.  But, if you post a new question here, I'm sure someone will know the answer rather quickly.
