It's not possible to make comprehensible speech with one frequency with no harmonics.
Try 440Hz sawtooth instead of sine.

Also if you want clear speech, try a high-resolution vocoder plugin e.g. mda talkbox

You can also not go the whole way. Mix a small portion of the original clean voice back in.
