You have to point to the block device your file system is on, not the disk
partition. I have used tune2fs on encrypted partitions and the device
is /dev/mapper/luks-someluksuuid . In your case you need to find the lvm
device name used for the file system. I don't know how those look, but
I would expect a device mapper entry for it, so /dev/mapper would be a
good place to look. You'll have a luks entry there as well, but you will
not want to use it as that is the device that lvm is on, not a device
provided by lvm.
