pvmove --abort is the correct way to stop a pvmove.
Then see how much got moved and decide if you want to pvmove it back.

The man page explains how it works, but the data moving happens in
the kernel - in the background if you like - and after the move begins,
the 'pvmove' process just monitors progress and tidies up when the
kernel has finished what it's been asked to do.
