If it is at all a viable option I would seriously consider putting Apache out front and using it as a proxy to both your IIS server and Confluence. I think you'll save yourself a lot of pain which I have experienced just having spent time connecting IIS to some Tomcat servers.

That way you can completely avoid what is a pretty arcane pursuit which relies on opaque and possibly outdated DLLs, Tomcat workers, etc. Though I know it might be hard to go the Apache proxy route if you're depending on NTLM for SSO or something.

Here is a bit of related documentation on that setup. In my opinion (if viable) this will be about 100x easier especially since there is really no next step if the IIS config doesn't work other than just trying it again.
