To expand on that a little: LVS (IPVS) is basically a kernel-level router with some extra whistles and bells. ipvsadm is the primary userspace tool used to manipulate the state of the system.

As Aaron says, LVS can make use of some of the functionality provided by iptables but it is separate and not dependent on it.
