There is no dehaze in Lightroom 6.
I believe the problem you are having can be solved by using the menu command Help-> Sign Out in Lightroom. Close Lightroom, then when you relaunch it will allow you to click on License this software, then you provide your Lightroom 6 serial number. Details are given here: How to convert a Lightroom CC trial to Lightroom 6

In addition to what dj_paige said, here's the difference between the 2 versions:
Once you use an email address that has been registered to a subscription plan, your Adobe ID, it will always be tied to, registered to, that subscription plan.
You need to create a second Adobe ID, using a different email address, that is not tied to any Adobe subscription plan. Then do the Sign Out and Sign back in to get the serial number input dialog. But once you Sign Out restart both your computer and LR.
The reason for this is simple. Once you buy a subscription the only way Adobe has to regulate the use of the programs that come with that subscription is through your Adobe ID Sign In. If you cancel or don't renew the subscription all the programs associated with that ID will be limited in functionality or not function at all. That ID will forever be TIED to that canceled subscription plan.
Thanks very much for the advice. I have now been able to launch LR6. Just
one more question - and apologies if it sounds basic - but do I need to
manually import files from CC to LR6?? They all appear to be there now LR6
has launched, but will this change when my CC subscription ends tomorrow?
Lightroom 6 is the same application as Lightroom CC 2015 and will utilize the CC Catalog just fine. The only difference is the Licensing procedure and some of the features like dehaze is not available.
No the catalog file is the same for both versions.
So just find your original catalog file and have LR open it. By default it is stored in your User Name folder usually in a subfolder under the Pictures folder.
Just to clear something up. LR 6 and LR CC are exactly the same program. Same download and same files get installed on your system.
The difference come from how you Sign In.
Sign In with an Adobe ID that is, or ever was, associated with a subscription plan and it becomes the CC version.
Sign In with an Adobe ID that is NOT and NEVER was associated with a subscription plan and it become the 6 version.
