You can use compizconfig-settings-manager to change windows minimize animations in Ubuntu.

Installation :

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager 

Or install using Ubuntu Software center :

Install via the software center

Usage :

Launch compizconfig-settings-manager, go in "Effects" > "Animations" > "Minimize Animation" tab.

Click on "Edit" and simply select the animation you want to use (I am not sure which one is closest to Mac OS animation. I let you test) :

You can also change the duration of the animation.
