That's more of a file system question than an LVM question and it's no
different than any other type of device: find the mount point of the
file system containing the file and then consult /proc/mounts or the
output of the mount command to determine what LV the file is on.

If you want to know where the data blocks are located physically you'll
need to do a bit more work: find the inode location, determine what
block ranges are allocated to it and then figure out how they map to
physical device regions using e.g. lvdisplay --maps. The details for
this step depend on the file system type you are using. For ext2/3 you
can determine the physical location of a file's data blocks using degbugfs.
