Yes, but to put / on LVM you need to use initrd.  You also probably want
to force the minor number of <VG>/root to something fixed, since the
kernel isn't mounting by name at that point.

I built an initrd with busybox, LVM, megaraid and bash.  Great for
diagnosing problems.

(Recent LILO has a bug with device-mapper.  Either downgrade or upgrade
to the latest, or follow the debian bugtracking on it)
