so, if the question was anh ấy dùng cái muổng như thế nào?

the answer would be "anh ấy dùng nó như ...." and some sort of comparison, for example, a shovel.

I understand như thế nào and thế nào to be both asking about manner, except that như thế nào is searching for a comparison like a metaphor or simile while thế nào could be that or demonstration or procedural explanation.

is this correct?

That's correct. Như = like. Như thế nào? = like what? and therefore = how.
