Being a vampire and using Drain Life are two very different things. Drain Life simply heals you at the cost of your opponent. A vampire becomes more powerful as they kill enemies, whether or not they use Drain Life. Also, I'm pretty sure Kreia probably used an advanced form of Drain Life. How else can a person by removed from the Force?
