No. Tomcat is a servlet container.

Together with Apache, it will be a "Web Server" which can
serve your servlets and jsps...

Look at the following page for more information

Tomcat is a fully functional web server on its own. It can be used to serve up any static content in addition to servlets and jsps.

It kind of depends on who defines "application". Our Internet Engineering guys consider anything that runs application code to be an application server. When I talk to these guys I've quit saying application server or web server and always say HTTP server, servlet container or EJB container. They quickly translate to managing static content, WAR and EAR and the appropriate management consoles.
