Water can condense from the hydrobarbons in the exhaust as a normal byproduct (http://www.doityourself.com/stry/is-water-dripping-from-your-exhaust-pipe-normal), mind you this is only a small amount of condensation. If you are getting a LOT of water, and are seeing a loss of coolant, you should also check the intake gasket, or consider you may have a cracked water jacket in the engine. Again, unless you are seeing a loss of coolant as well, I wouldn't get too concerned over some water dripping from a tail pipe.
