ant 1.5.3 cannot "spawn" processes like tomcat.
have a look at this posting from Bill Burton :
Subject:  [SUBMIT] Support for detached <exec> on Unix and Windows

in ant1.6alpha, the exec task has a spawn attribute.

it works like that

<exec executable="cmd.exe" spawn="true">
     <arg value="/C"/>
     <arg value="start-tomcat.bat"/>
      <arg value=">NUL"/>
not the >NUL this is to redired the stdout of the start-tomcat.bat to the
nirvana, otherwise the spawned process crashes.
Or you can write your own wrapper to redirect the output to a log file.
