It looks like it's running out of memory when starting more threads.
Did you check if you have enough memory in this server to run Tomcat?
I think you need at least 512MB for it, but I would recommend more.

I know there are some tunings made to the JVM for it to request more
memory. If you do "ps -ef | grep java" when Tomcat is started you will
see some parameters starting with -X that will specify memory sizes,
check how much it requests. I don't really know how to tweak those,
check the script that starts Tomcat to see if it allows changing them.
