I am assuming the above refers to the dialyzer tool in the OTP distribution.

Dialyzer has no reader of its own. It works at the level of Core Erlang. 
If LFE, or for that matter whatever other source transformation tool, 
produces proper (Core) Erlang code annotated with line information then 
dialyzer will of course have this info.
