What you want can't be done in Lightroom. You can do stuff like this in Photoshop with content aware scale where it will use AI to figure out what to stretch or repeat and what to keep. Results of this vary wildly depending on your image but can work really well. Here is the first result of a google search: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixCroJfzM6U

You could try the Aspect slider in Transform panel, although it won't be 100% square.

So, if you don't want to distort the photo, the answer is: you can't. Rectangular photos can only be made square by cropping or distorting. The Aspect slider will distort your photo (make tall people look shorter or short people look taller; make skinny people look heavier or heavy people look skinnier).
