In a 47th meeting between the two greats, the stubborn Djokovic simply refused to be beaten as he eked out a fourth successive victory over Federer in a tiebreak decider after three compelling hours.
Marat Safin - to whom Karen Khachanov has often been compared - won the Paris Masters three times, but lost his first final to Andre Agassi.
He said: "I am very happy to come to the finals but I didn't feel too good today".
Cilic wrapped up the opener in the 10th game, ending Djokovic's 30-set win streak in the process.
"He's a young player, up and coming, but already an established player, a top player". So all the credit to him.
Karen Khachanov saved two match points against John Isner on his way to defeating the eighth-seeded American 6-4, 6-7 (9/11), 7-6 (10/8).
"When you lose a close match like this you always have regrets", he said.
Djokovic seemed agitated at times and twice turned to his box to remonstrate about an unspecified issue during the first set. In the 2013 semifinals, he bounced back from a set down to beat the Swiss, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.
Djokovic struggled to handle Khachanov's brutal two-handed, cross-court backhands from the baseline, which often landed near his ankles, and dropped his serve again to trail 2-1 in the second set.
The Russian went on to break the Serbian early on in the second set but failed to capitalise off another three break points in the seventh game.
They don't give you any time and they are serving all really good. "His serve is really, really strong and precise".
Federer thrust his arms into the air, the crowd rose to their feet in sheer disbelief. In general, it's a breakthrough season.
