It would be nice to know the exact difference between usage of "Câu bé" and "Con trai".

Cậu bé = little boy.

Con trai = boy (in general)

Nam = male

Đàn ông = man

"cậu bé" means any "little boy", "con trai" means "son".

Example:

"Đứa con trai của tôi nhỏ hơn cậu bé kia một tuổi."

(My son is one year younger than that little boy.)
