of course you can!

if i understand correctly the original question, he has an LV
(/dev/mapper/test_vg-test64_454) that he wants to make available to
two DomUs as a shared block device, with OCFS2 inside it so they play

for that, simply use the 'w!' flag to turn off the 'only one DomU per
backing storage' safety check.

all this has nothing to do if the backing store is on phy:, tap: or
file:, nor on the filesystem used to hold the backing files (if the're
files and not block devices)
