This only works in the Logos LXX – but in the Logos LXX there is a reverse interlinear which pairs each Greek word with its Hebrew counterpart. So if you right click on a Greek word in the Logos LXX it will give you the option to search with the Hebrew lemma or the Greek lemma. If you choose the Hebrew lemma and then select SEARCH THIS RESOURCE it will search the LXX for that lemma. Then you can choose ANALYSIS and break down the results even further. By dragging up the column header entitled LEMMA (GREEK) it will show all of the Greek lemmas that translated that Hebrew lemma. Of course, it also works in reverse [that is, I can choose a Greek lemma and search the LXX for the Hebrew words that are translated by it].
Of course, this basic approach also works with any English translation with a reverse interlinear. You can simply search the entire resource [Old and New Testaments] for a given English word and then note the Hebrew and Greek lemmas used to translate that word.
