Right now it isn't configurable, it is set to the HTTP common logtime
format. However, you could modify lib/Vend/Util.pm and make the
logtime() routine configurable:

# Returns time in HTTP common log format
sub logtime {
    return POSIX::strftime($::Variable->{MV_LOGTIME_FORMAT} || "[%d/%B/%Y:%H:%M:%S %z]", localtime());

Then in catalog.cfg:

    Variable MV_LOGTIME_FORMAT [%d/%b/%Y:%H:%M:%S %z]
