snapshot may be a good fit in this case, but if you insist you can use lvconvert to convert your linear volume to a mirrored volume. Once the sync is complete, you can use the same lvconvert to convert the mirror volume to a linear one.

But with this I loose the secondary copy. It's not a good idea. Backup and destroy backup :-)

If that is on a single PV, you can disconnect it to avoid it being allocated by LVM for other things. I think, taking a snapshot and coping it somewhere as someone said is a good idea.
