What my apt-get got me was Tomcat 8.0.14.
Can I get Tomcat 8.5 via an apt-get? If so, how?

The apt-cache command says that the backports repository has Tomcat 8.5.14.
My mentally-lazy way to get everything I needed to install it looked as
apt-get install tomcat8=8.5.14-1~bpo8+1 tomcat8-common=8.5.14-1~bpo8+1
libtomcat8-java=8.5.14-1~bpo8+1 libecj-java=3.11.0-5~bpo8+1

Tried it just now. This is what I got:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Version '8.5.14-1~bpo8+1' for 'tomcat8' was not found
E: Version '8.5.14-1~bpo8+1' for 'tomcat8-common' was not found

Am I doing something wrong?

Have you added the jessie-backports repository to your
/etc/apt/sources.list yet?

There's a how-to for that here, along with other information you might
like to know:
