You can hire PTC or one of their partners to create such an extension, but it's not that hard to do yourself. Especially method 1) I suggested above could be done in little time. See https://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-9.0-doc/config/valve.html#Access_Log_Valve

ThingWorx can't arbitrarily access folders in the file system. OOTB it has access to its own folders, and the folders of the File Repositories.

There are two (safe) ways to access this log from ThingWorx:

1) Configure tomcat to put this log into a folder of a ThingWorx File Repository

2) Create a java extension which reads the file from the tomcat folder. Extensions can access any folder.

No, it's created by Tomcat, not by ThingWorx.
