Re: <p>Is it possible to configure Tomcat and/or Apache so that Apache can handle static content that is processed by a filter?

No, I do not think this is possible.
I think that the connector checks that if a file is not processed by anything on the Servlet Container side, then it is sent back to Apache, but once a request starts to be processed by the Container, it follows the full lifecycle.
Maybe you cold contact the mod_webapp developers to understand if there is a way to put hooks in their code and send back the response to Apache for further processing... more or less like the PerlHandler of Apache's mod_perl.
