Yes, it is usually a shell script which sets up your session and
starts the windowmanager or desktop environment, so you could add
export PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin"
in an appropriate place.

Note that this script is not part of LightDM, it is your
distributions responsibility to provide such a wrapper script and
to configure LightDM to use it. If that's not the case I would
file a bug against your distros LightDM package.
