Here's a snippet of my own kickstart which sets up a few logvols of 
its own. Don't know what's wrong with yours exactly, but this works 
fine for me - maybe you can mod it to your own purposes.

zerombr yes
clearpart --all

partition /boot --fstype ext3 --size=100
partition pv.01 --size=100 --grow
volgroup vg01 pv.01
logvol / --fstype ext3 --name=lvol1 --vgname=vg01 --size=2000
logvol /var --fstype ext3 --name=lvol2 --vgname=vg01 --size=2000
logvol /usr --fstype ext3 --name=lvol3 --vgname=vg01 --size=1000
logvol /tmp --fstype ext3 --name=lvol4 --vgname=vg01 --size=1000
logvol swap --fstype swap --name=lvol5 --vgname=vg01 --recommended
logvol /opt --fstype ext3 --name=lvol6 --vgname=vg01 --size 1000
