If I understand your question correctly this is simple:

LPTSTR lpszModifyable = . . .
LPCTSTR lpszConstant = lpszModifyable;

No need to cast.

What is suggested by stefanr actually performs an implicit cast from LPTSTR to LPCTSTR.  Identically you could use an explicit cast, but you say in your question that you don't want a c-style conversion.  I'm kind of confused by that remark, but here is a function which is what you asked for:

LPCTSTR convert(LPTSTR str)
{
    return (LPCTSTR(str));
}
