Did e2fsadm (with the implicit fsck) grow the fs successfully ?
IOW: did that fsck run without any errors ?

Before you change anything more, make sure you've got a backup of your data ;)

That sounds like the fs hasn't grown actually which is the case when
fsck returns an error to e2fsadm.

We need the _exact_ size of the fs (use tune2fs -l /dev/... and look for
the block count and block size paramaters).
See if that fits the LV size.
