yes, you can.
There are the tables SYSCAT.TABLES and SYSCAT.COLUMNS (and SYSCAT.ENUMTYPES for valid enumerations).
Their Layout is as shown in the attachment.

Use select  TABNAME from SYSCAT.TABLES    to get a listing of all tables,
Use select * from SYSCAT.COLUMNS where TABNAME='[tablename]'  to get the column layout of a given table [tabname].

COLNAME                TYPENAME                    LENGTH
------------------     ------------------     -----------
TABSCHEMA              VARCHAR                          8
TABNAME                VARCHAR                         18
CREATE_TIME            TIMESTAMP                        0
COLCOUNT               SMALLINT                         0
INDEX_COLCOUNT         SMALLINT                         0
UNIQUE_INDEX           BOOLEAN                          0
REMARKS                VARCHAR                        250 
COLNAME                TYPENAME                    LENGTH

Unfortunately, I'm not aware of such a document, as far as Tivoli Storage Manager is concerned.
There are some database layouts around for e.g. Tivoli Configuration Manager, however.
I'll append the content of SYSCAT.TABLES and SYSCAT.COLUMNS (slightly less detailed than the original) as .txt files for your reference.
 I'll search some material elsewhere, but I can't promise that I'll find any.

Got this jpeg for you. But that's all, I fear.
