The coordinates displayed on the axis of any kind of Log plot
apparently don't correspond to the actual coordinate system used in
the graphic.  If you take a look at the Options of one of the graphics
you generated, the tick marks show that the actual graphics
coordinates run across the logarithms of the y values of your data
points, although the labels on the y-axis don't reflect this.  Two
possible workarounds are to use Scaled coordinates, e.g.

ListLogPlot[X, Epilog -> {Red, Point@Scaled@{.2, .3}}]

or to do something like this:

ListLogPlot[X, Epilog -> {Red, Point@{7, Log[7] }} ]

Hope that helps!
