    No, they are different in meaning.

    Due to - because of

    To be due - should come/must come/supposed to come or arrive/one`s obligation to do smth.
    He was due to appear in court last Friday but didn`t show up [ He should have come.../He had to appear in court..]

    with due respect - with the appropriate respect

    etc

    All the best,
