I have not had a problem using e2resize to shrink an unmounted ext3
filesystem and then using LVM to reallocate PE's.

I did have some issues using 'pvmove' to free a disk from LVM because of
incompatibilities of kernel.org kernels vs LVM-patched RedHat kernels. 
The workaround I used was just to boot single user mode with a patched
redhat kernel for the pvmove operation.
