In Tablut tournament #4738, I've reached the final without losing a single game. My opponent, who I defeated in the first round, has a higher rating than I and has somehow reached the final with a higher TPR.

This is particularly problematic in Tablut, since against approximately equal opponents, a 2-2 result is very likely (its much harder to win as white).

I assume (correct me if I'm wrong) that this occurs because of some mathematical magic involving our opponents' ratings, but it does seem a tad unfair.

What could I have done differently to reach the final with an equal chance of winning against my higher-rated opponent?

You could not have don anything different, it's because your opponent in de semi finals is extremely weak.
