Yes, most definitely. LVM and RAID are fully implemented in preseed.

All of this is totally doable, however, a warning with /boot. Although
you can do this, you MUST be running GRUB version 2 or newer, otherwise
you'll have to use LILO, which means you'll lose usplash, among other
things. If you still want GRUB, then /boot will need to be on a native
ext2/ext3 partition.
