I'm not sure, but I bet you could do it via preseeding apt - search for
preseeding on the ubuntu wiki.

/boot can definitely be on a mirror, and separately part of LVM. I don't
know if it can be part of both at the same time, but I am pretty certain
it can. The only part that would potentially be an issue would be the
boot loader.

If not, you could always have LVM do the mirroring on /boot, rather than
use md.

I haven't tried it, sorry...
