I don't believe you can monitor an external process. If you want to run your
project within NetBeans click on the "Runtime" tab. Under Server Registry ->
Installed Servers -> Tomcat, you will find the internal installation of
Tomcat. If you right click the icon you will see all of the options
available to you (starting, stopping, etc). The NetBeans installation runs
on port 8081. 

If you need to add an external installation of Tomcat, right click on the
"Tomcat" menu and select "Add Tomcat Installation". I am pretty sure this
will modify your server.xml file, so, make a back up...

I am not an expert on NetBeans by any means, so, I hope this helps.
