He lied about the need for war. He knew there were no weapons of mass destruction, because Hans Blix had made that very clear. He knew that Osama Bin Laden wasn't working with Saddam, yet he worked to reinforce that impression. By lying about the need for war, he tricked people into thinking that it was necessary.
He lied about the cost of war. He said it would only take a matter of weeks. He said Iraq's oil stockpiles would cover the costs. He continues to avoid putting the war in the budget. By lying about the cost, he tricked people into thinking the war would be easy.
