Yes, you can. They are installed on a different places. But if you would like to run them together in the same time, you need to use different listening port of the webserver.

Apache HTTP Server is installed to listen on port 80, the default webserver port (use localhost in your browser). Tomcat6 comes configured to use 8080 (use localhost:8080 in your browser)

So in default configurations the webservers do not clashes.
