You might be thinking of Leper Messiah. Lars counts in the song with five hihat hits ("ONE! TWO! Tssch, tssch, tssch, tssch, tssch"), but the actual song is in standard 4/4 (it's surprising how many people think it's in 5/4 based purely on that intro though). Other than that, I can't think of any 5/4 songs on Master Of Puppets.

edit: Actually, there are single bars of 5/4 in Battery, where they sing the "BATTERY" line, but no prolonged sections of 5/4.
