I want to create an image with the distribution RHEL 6.2 using an ISO image (which I didn't download yet) on a KVM hypervisor. And it would be great if you have some hints to do so! and then how I can install HTTPTomcat on it. Thank you ^^

Perform install Qemu VM via virt-install or virt-manager on filesystem based on RHEL 6.X as source ISO image.
Then inside VM manage as you need ( install HTTPD or whatever)

View for instance RHEL6 (CentOS6) KVM Guest VM install example or Virt-manger Instructions Link
