I saw the following sentence in a book, and I don't know why the "to" is there. Is it correct at all?
Most people feel — or to have been taught — that there is an absolute difference between “creative writing” and “the other kind”

I agree, the "to" looks out of place, and is probably an error.
The implied "or" is "Most people to have been taught that...". That is clearly wrong.
An interesting observation is that it took me multiple attempts to understand the question. I did not see the word "to" at all at first. My brain just edited out of the sentence.
