This is explained in the installation tutorials. The configuration guide has more detail.

In a nutshell, you create a section in cinder.conf that describes your LVM backend. Let's say you call it [lvm]. You then add the name of this section to the enabled_backends config parameter in the [DEFAULT] section, for example enabled_backends = lvm.

I don't quite understand what goes wrong in your case, but when you use the LVM driver, each Cinder volume will be implemented by an LVM volume from the volume group that you configure.
