Yes, you can get additional plants from a tomato plant. You cut off the suckers and stick them in a pot. They root very easily. I've done that several times, but I don't have a greenhouse so I don't know anything about overwintering them in there, but it should work I would think. Rooting suckers is also a good way to get a second batch of tomato plants going without starting from seed again.

Here's a good article on cutting and rooting suckers:

Some people cut all suckers from their plants. I've been told that suckers won't produce fruit on the plant, but they will.
