Large tongue also known as macroglossia is a rare entity and not commonly seen in general population. So you need not worry about size of your tongue as its got nothing to do with production of saliva.
Dryness of mouth can occur due to various reasons such as
1. Nutritional deficiency
2. Autoimmune diseases like sjogrens syndrome
3. Reflux pharyngitis etc
You should consult nearby ENT specialist for complete evaluation of your mouth and salivary glands
