I'm guessing you're trying to extend by too large a size. Use
pvdisplay on /dev/sde1 and note the number of physical extents free.
Then try passing that to e2fsadm with the '-l' flag instead of passing
33.91G with the '-L' flag. This is just a guess though. It's pretty
hard to tell without all the commands you ran and the output they gave
