There actually isn't a way to execute Solr itself, it doesn't have a 
main method.  Solr is a servlet, so it requires a servlet container to 
run.  The container that it ships with is jetty.  You have mentioned tomcat.

I don't know how you might go about running tomcat and Solr within 
IntelliJ.  Perhaps someone else here might.  The debugging instructions 
on the wiki for IntelliJ seem to indicate that you debug remotely and 
start the included jetty with some special options:

If you do figure out how to get IntelliJ to deploy directly to a locally 
installed tomcat, please update the wiki with the steps required.
