Did you try ltsp-rewrap-latest-kernel within the chroot? That runs
dracut with the desired parameters.

After the initramfs inside the chroot is regenerated, run
ltsp-update-kernels ON THE HOST which copy from your chroot's /boot to
your tftp directories.
If you get this working, could you write a short guide on how you did
it? This would be great for others in the community to learn how to
customize their own boot images.
