How can you add new applications to Tomato's restriction list. I need to block access to such applications as Skype, ooVoo.

Well, the problem is that under Layer 7 list of available applications you can choose from does not have required programs (in my case Skype and ooVoo). Is there any way to add those applications manually by yourself?
I see "skypeout" and "skypetoskype". Those may be able to control Skype.
I have the following ports open for Oovoo TCP: 37674, 443, and th efollowing UDP ports open: 37674,443, and 37675, UPnP services are started.
Establish just an ooVoo conversation on your network and check QOS - Details to see what ports are being used. You can use access restictions to block any range of ports.
The skypeout filter lets a lot of P2P though, but the skypetoskype works reasonably well. I presume you've tried the usual text strings in access restrictions, and found they aren't what you want?

Unfortunately neither "skypeout" nor "skypetoskype" is working to prevent the Skype application from running. I'm just wondering if anyone is aware of how to add applications to the Restriction List (Layer 7).
Skype must "call home" - I'd capture a tcpdump trace of the initial connection and then block all connections to that destination IP (or IPs - I'm assuming it's using a DNS record which may/probably do map do multiple destination IPs, but you can always block the entire subnet if applicable).
