I have a harmony 900 that I would like to use to dim the two recessed ceiling lights in my theater room. I want to be able to use dimmable LED bulbs with this setup. Custom scene settings would be nice but not critical. At the very minimum I want to be able to turn the lights on and off with the harmony remote. The Lutron Maestro seems to be a popular choice with harmony users, but I can't find any information on how well it works with LED bulbs.

As long as the LED lamp is dimmable, you should be fine. Just be aware that most dimmers have a minimum load requirement - with LEDs you might be underneath that if you've only got a few on the circuit.
