You've got your quotes all wrong. Always surround the complete filter-chain with double quotes and use single quotes for the individual filters.

ffmpeg -i audio1.wav -i audio2.wav -lavfi "asendcmd='4 astreamselect map 1',asendcmd='6 astreamselect map 0',astreamselect=map=0" -y out.wav

ffmpeg -i audio1.wav -i audio2.wav -lavfi "asendcmd='4 amix weights '\\\'0 1\\\',amix=weights='1 0'" -y out.wav
