I need to stop all the exchange services in order to move the log files. Once this is done, would a reboot restart them all?

Simple answer, yes a restart would definitely restart your services.

What specifically are you doing ?
Just moving transaction logs ?

You don't move transaction logs manually - you need to do it through Exchange.

For all other logs, it depends which ones you are moving the location of. Once you have restarted their associated services you can move the older logs later.

I need to release the file lock on the logging directory and log files.

I thought so, go ahead and use any of the documented processes and reboot, you'll be fine.
