In that case, you could build the straight 32 bit LFS book, but might
still have problems.  I've never tried this, so I can't really say.
Although, it's possible that some configure scripts, etc., may detect
your 64 bit architecture and attempt to build 64 bit binaries.

It would be safest to use the Cross-LFS technique.  Otherwise, you'll
have to be very careful at each step of the way making sure that
you're creating 32 bit binaries, they're being installed to the right
locations, no features are being excluded, etc.  Sorry, that's the
best I can say.  Maybe someone else who has tried this will chime in.
