    Try \logo{\includegraphics[height=0.5cm]{logofile.png}} instead. Maybe LyX has problems detecting the PGF image macros. Jun 28, 2011 at 10:22

Martin Scharrer's comment sent me on the right track. The \logo command just sets a sub-document to be placed somewhere appropriate. So, you can create a LaTeX text with "\logo{" (Ctrl-L), use Insert > Graphics as regular, and add a closing LaTeX text with "}".

If an editor screenshot jogs memory for LyX users (hopefully UCB will forgive me for any potential copyright issues),

LyX logo include
