Not a summit, at least I can't think of a mountain range that this could be referring to. The set of objects this is referring to can be rather variable in its exact size; there might be two in the dark home, nine puffed up with pride, only two working the stone, and even none at all nearest the sky in many cases.

Sorry I've been away for a bit. I like that answer quite a bit as it could explain at least the two and roughly eight objects in a set, although it’s not what I had in mind. Your line of thinking is on the right track.

Back at last, I had nearly forgotten that this one was still out there. I should probably add a bit more to give this some direction... while sticking to Tolkien.

A latch that locks without a key
So what's inside they will not see

I never cease to be amazed by answers like chess pieces that work rather well despite not being very similar to what I had in mind. I suspect that the difficulty with this riddle has a lot to due with the fact that the numbers of these things can be variable and need not precisely match the numbers given in the riddle.

To add a bit more riddling about this thing...



Two for the Elven kings nearest the sky
Four for the Dwarf lords who work on the stone
Eight for Mortal Men puffed up with pride
One for the Dark Lord in his dark home
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie
One to reclaim the throne, no one will find them
You are to bring him, and in the light bind him
From the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie

A latch that locks without a key
So what's inside they will not see

A dozen assassins on a white plain
First they stab
Then they grab
Then from motion restrain
