Right now the only way to translate LilyPond files to MusicXML is to scan your 
PDFs (or PNGsā€¦) with OMR software. Unfortunately these programs are also quite 
expensive and the resulting files need to be corrected. The extent of needed 
corrections depend on the complexity of your scores and the software. You could 
give Audiveris v4.3 (free & open source)  a try but your scores are bound to 
suffer severe losses...
