While viewing the lammps output file through vmd can we show the boundaries of the box somehow?

yes and no.
you can use the pbctools package to visualize the box.
but you need to use a file format that contains the information of the
simulation cell (i.e. not .xyz).
and even then, VMD internally only stores the length of the box in x,
y, z, not the box boundaries.
so you have to provide the missing information when using the pbc box command.
please note that this is a VMD question and not a LAMMPS question. in
the future please direct such questions to the vmd-l mailing list.
This is really a VMD question, not a LAMMPS question.
But type pbc box at the command line.
