I start some services such as Tomcat and MySQL from a shell script /etc/rc.local. There is a while loop to restart the services. This loop is continuously running and my system is not booting. How can I solve this?

You have to exit from rc.local to continue booting. Put an ampersand (&) after your command in the rc.local file, that should help.
