The Hoops went in front with a headed goal from Georgios Samaras in the 18th minute, before Andres Iniesta equalised for Barca just before the break.
The Spanish side relentlessly attacked the Celtic goal in the second half but the visitors held off until the 94th minute, when defender Jordi Alba sneaked in at the back post with a winner.
Lurgan-born boss Lennon, who had called for a "heroic" performance from his players, looked devastated at the final whistle after his team came so close to getting a draw.
The players were applauded off by their supporters at the Nou Camp.
