What are you trying to achieve exactly ? Fusion non-adjacent polygons or
give them all the same category value ? If the later, then you can use
v.reclass on the column containing the common code (as long as this is
an integer).

There was no attachment... Do I understand correctly that for one 
category value you will have several tuples in a table giving different 
information concerning this same category ? That's seems like a definite 
"don't do" to me.

Or (although not sure if I understand exactly what your objectif is): 
create a view in sqlite combining the currently attached and the other 
table and then v.db.connect your map to that view.

Do your features have category values in layer 2 ? If not, you can
attach as many tables as you want, but there will be no features that
correspond to the tuples in these tables.
