Jim McGuinness' side was seeking back-to-back appearances in the provincial decider for the first time since 1993, but it was Tyrone who edged the first half by a single point.
Scores from Stephen O'Neill, Sean O'Neill, Mark Donnelly and Conor Clarke, as well as a long-range free from Joe McMahon, helped Mickey Harte's side to a 0-7 to 0-6 lead at the break, and a further score from McMahon extended the lead to two points early in the second half.
However, Tyrone appeared to run out of steam and Donegal began to stamp their authority as the game progressed.
Rory Kavanagh fired over two points from play and Colm McFadden added a free in between a score from Dermot Carlin, which proved to be Tyrone's last for more than 20 minutes.
With the game now tied, the defending Ulster Champions went ahead through Ryan Bradley, and two further points from McFadden and a free left four between them with less than ten minutes left.
However, he was sent off late on for a second yellow, and Stephen O'Neill knocked over the free to leave a goal in it with the seconds ticking down.
The Red Hands almost secured the vital three-pointer deep in injury time when Martin Penrose slammed through a low shot, but Donegal stopper Paul Durcan was equal to the effort, turning the ball onto the post with an outstretched foot.
Conor Gormley pointed from the resulting 45, but it was not enough as Donegal booked a meeting with Down in the provincial decider.
