We're running on 4.1.3 on Solaris and it appears to contain a bit more:      

<Host className="org.apache.catalina.core.StandardHost" appBase="{your_app_base}" autoDeploy="true" configClass="org.apache.cata
lina.startup.ContextConfig" contextClass="org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext" debug="0" deployXML="true" errorReportValveClass="org
.apache.catalina.valves.ErrorReportValve" liveDeploy="true" mapperClass="org.apache.catalina.core.StandardHostMapper" name="{your_FQDN}" unpackWARs="true">
        <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve" debug="0" directory="logs/access" resolveHosts="false" suffix=".txt"
 prefix="{app_name_access.}" pattern="%h %l %u %t &quot;%r&quot; %s %b" fileDateFormat="yyyy-MM-dd" rotatable="true"/>
      <Alias>{your_app_alias}</Alias>
</Host>


The hierarchy of elements is as follows - top to bottom (don't forget your closing elements):

<Server>
 <JNDI> (if needed)
 <Service>
  <Connector>
   <Engine>
    <Listener> global
    <Valve> global
    <Realm> global
    <Logger> global
     <Host> default
      <Context> default
     <Host(s)> defined
      <Valve>
      <Logger>

Perhaps you can access the admin GUI to set it up through that - in 4.x I believe the admin gui was included in the distribution.
