Yes its easy RAD 6 also uses axis for creating the stubs, hence you can follow this link, I am assuming you are taking about HTTP Basic authentication and not username token.
http://www.nsftools.com/stubby/ApacheAxisClientTips.htm

all you need to do is ass these lines before invoking the operation.

// to use Basic HTTP Authentication:
((Stub) service)._setProperty(Call.USERNAME_PROPERTY, "user name");
((Stub) service)._setProperty(Call.PASSWORD_PROPERTY, "password");


if you were looking for username token you can still follow my tutorial here as axis was implementaion of Jax-RPC
