The ants have nothing to do with the (supposed) condition of the tree. Ants live in every tree, and towards the end of the life of the tree you may see even more ants. They do no damage to the tree. In fact, they help it.

It sounds as though you might have to pull the tree down, eventually, I would get the advice of a qualified tree surgeon. There may be a way to extend the life of the tree, but only he might know that.
