Not sure what exactly you looking for. If you have:

Browser <-c1-> Apache <-c2-> Backend

where Apache acts as forward proxy, the both c1 and c2 can be TLS connections, e.g. encrypted.
But that means that the data is unencrypted "inside" the Apache server. There is no end-to-end
encryption between Browser and Backend.

As for the TLS c2 connection setup, you have to specify "https:" for your proxied backend
and can influence the setup with the various "SSLProxy*" directives.
