Brennan is the seventh Irish fighter to seal his place at the upcoming Games.
Four judges scored the contest a 28-28 draw but gave the inner-city native the nod.
The final score was 27-29, 28-28, 28-28, 28-28.
Elsewhere on Monday, Michaela Walsh and Kellie Harrington both booked their places in their finals in the French capital.
Belfast native Walsh won her semi-final against Bulgaria's Stanmira Petrova on a split decision, having already qualified for the Games.
And Harrington cruised to a unanimous 5-0 win over Turkish lightweight Esra Yidiz to mean she will come home with at least a silver medal.
