I've setup six CSV disks on my Hyper-V R2 cluster. Now that I have it setup how can I tell which physical disks correspond to the clustered volumes?

The easy way is to start by adding one LUN to the cluster at a time and walking it up through the process to create a CSV. I use Excel to track the Storage name, the iSCSI target name (if any), the volume name, and the CSV Path. That makes it a lot easier when I have to troubleshoot.
However, there is a workaround. You can change the Current Owner of a CSV. The Current Owner will be the only machine that shows the disk as online in Storage | Disk Management. Move the disks to one node and them bring them to the other node one at a time. You can use the properties of that disk to map back to the storage LUN.

I like your idea. I ended up taking all of my CSV disks out and readding each individually. Kind of a pain that MS doesn't have a good way to track this.

Don't forget that you can rename the CSV resource and the CSV folder. I also do this and it make a it even easier.
