How would I get Tomcat to start/init a context immediately when the service starts? Currently the context is only loaded and initialized on the first page view.

Is this something that has to be done in the web.xml file? I'd likely to do this per-context if at all possible.

You could add a ServletContextListener for each context. You can find an example here.
