I m not sure but i think : may be is inclined towards probably.

I mean perhaps could be used where we have condition. may or may not.

may be when we have some probable idea..

See this discussion: may-be-vs-probably-82868.html

Perhaps is more formal
Maybe is more conversational

If two choices are presented, I would have an inclination towards Perhaps.
