"used to", a predicate adjective, means, accustomed to, whereas "use", a transitive verb, means "bring into service", and it is always followed by an object (i.e. use it, used it, use them, used them) and never followed by "to".
Speakers tend to omit the sound [d] when pronouncing "used to". The reason being, "used to" ([ju:sdtu]) has three consonants in a row [sdt]. The first and last sounds, [s] and [t] are voiceless, whereas the middle sound [d] is voiced. [d] is the odd sound out, so speakers tend to deleted it, producing [ju:s'tu], which sounds like *"use to", but should always be written as "used to".
