You still don't fix it?  I remembered yesterday that the shell doesn't
want escaped quotes inside a quoted argument, so you must quit the
quoted environment and put an escaped quote, something like

su - postgres -c "echo "\""copy test from '/data/log/bla';"\"" | pgsql logdb"

The echo-pipe is still overkill, you can do it using -c as I showed
yesterday by applying the same "trick".
