Is there any adjustment of the tension on a 1997 Catera timing belt?

No-there is one belt tensioner for the entire engine belt assembly. The timing belt is a serpentine belt and if it is stretched out, it will need to be replaced. There is no way to adjust the timing belt once it is put on the vehicle.
