I don't think that I have ever had a Tomcat Installation missing this though...
I ran into the same problem. I queried which package contained the file /etc/tomcat6/Catalina/localhost/manager.xml with
yum provides /etc/tomcat6/Catalina/localhost/manager.xml
No packages were reported to own this file. I then queried the same file for tomcat5 with
yum provides /etc/tomcat5/Catalina/localhost/manager.xml
And I got
tomcat5-admin-webapps-5.5.27-7.4.fc12.noarch : Administrative web applications for Apache Tomcat
Repo : fedora
Filename : /etc/tomcat5/Catalina/localhost/manager.xml
I then ran
rpm -ql tomcat6-admin-webapps
as I had that package installed on my system to see if it contained the same file, but I found that it really missed that file(along with other xml files under /etc/tomcat6/Catalina/localhost, although the folder itself existed as part of the tomcat6 package).
I've filed a bug report for this at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=641196

It turned out that the problem was related to bad file permissions on /etc/tomcat6/Catalina(and consequently on its subdirectory localhost) as illustrated in an earlier bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=574593
