you will need 2 listimages called SmallImages and LargeImages

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var SysIL: THandle;
    SFI:TSHFileInfo;
    SysSIL: THandle;
begin
 with SmallImages do begin
       SysSIL := SHGetFileInfo('', 0, SFI, SizeOf(SFI),
        SHGFI_SYSICONINDEX or SHGFI_SMALLICON);
      if SysSIL <> 0 then begin
        SmallImages.Handle := SysSIL;
        ShareImages := True;
      end;
    end;
   with LargeImages do begin
        SysIL := SHGetFileInfo('', 0, SFI, SizeOf(SFI),
        SHGFI_SYSICONINDEX or SHGFI_LARGEICON);
       if SysIL <> 0 then begin
        LargeImages.Handle := SysIL;
        ShareImages := True;
      end;
    end;
end;

function Tform1.GetIconIndex(const AFile: string; Attrs: DWORD): integer;
var
  SFI: TSHFileInfo;
begin
  SHGetFileInfo(PChar(AFile), Attrs, SFI, SizeOf(TSHFileInfo),
    SHGFI_SYSICONINDEX or SHGFI_USEFILEATTRIBUTES);
  Result := SFI.iIcon;
end;

listview.Items.Add.ImageIndex:=Form1.GetIconIndex(Name,FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY) - for folders
or
listview.Items.Add.ImageIndex:=Form1.GetIconIndex(Name,FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMALE) - for files      

-were name is your filename or folder
