Is the word "guise" used correctly in this sentence?
Macbeth and Lady Macbeth tried to guise their evil deeds with false appearances.

No. It is misused. Guise is not a verb (apparently it was at one time but it is now listed as archaic and/or obsolete), but you are using it as one. You could use "disguise," or "conceal" or anything similar to convey the thought you have tried to articulate.
