Is this meant to be a solid volume where the cylinder end has been rounded off?

If so, then you can do a "sequential" additive solid -- start with a regular cylinder (G4Tubs) with the top surface short of your true length by the corner radius. Now make a G4UnionSolid by attaching a Torus to the top end, with the midplane at the top surface of the cylinder. Finally, make a new G4UnionSolid by attaching another G4Tubs, this time with a radius reduced by the corner radius, and positioned half that radius above the end surface of the original cylinder.

Repeat the process at the other end if necessary. There's no way to do this all in one step -- the Boolean solids only work pairwise.
