I'm using my Caps-lock as "CTRL" on Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4. On Linux and Windows I can easily close and open tabs via CTRL+W and CTRL+T.

However on Mac I have to use CMD+W and CMD+T. CTRL+W and CTRL+T doesn't work.

What can I to fix this behaviour?

The easiest fix might just be to remap caps lock to command. –  Nathan Greenstein Jul 4 '12 at 15:38

You can customize some shortcuts in System Preferences:

You could also use an application like Keyboard Mastro to assign control-W to a macro that emulates pressing command-W. But it might have a small additional delay or not work everywhere.

But it would be nearly impossible to have the shortcuts changed consistently or to use control instead of command as a modifier key everywhere in OS X.
