Oh yeah that's a feature of dpkg actually.

If you delete a control-file, dpkg assumes you have deleted or renamed it
on purpose and it will never ever install that file again.

2 solutions:
1. Purge apache from your system (dpkg --purge) and reinstall
2. Unpack the .deb file and copy the /etc/init.d/apache from it
   (dpkg -X apache_1.1.1-5.deb /tmp/apache)
