The hosts scored the tie's first point when Iskandar Zulkarnain beat the Republic's Ryan Ng 19-21, 21-17, 21-10 in the first singles.
Singapore then went 2-0 down when their pair of Loh Kean Hean and Terry Hee lost 21-10, 20-22, 21-15 to Teo Ee Yi and Ong Yew Sin.
The Malaysians booked their spot in the final when Soong Joo Ven beat Singapore's Loh Kean Yew 9-21, 21-17, 21-18 in the third match.
