Which processor in each one?  In general, Apple offers faster processors in the 15" models than the 13" models so getting the exact specs is necessary in order to answer the question.

the 13 would be this one Refurbished 13.3-inch MacBook Pro 3.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 with Retina display - Silver or the late 2106 2.9 mhz 15 inch PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 Quad-Core
16GB of 2133 MHz RAM | 1TB PCIe SSD
15.4" 2880 x 1800 Retina Display
AMD Radeon Pro 460 GPU (4GB GDDR5)

The 15" is a quad core, which will be at least 50% faster - Lightroom export is relatively well threaded to take advantage of the extra cores, as far as I know. Lightroom also benefits from the GPU for some operations.

With those processor specs, assuming they are from similar processor generations,  the 15" will smoke the 13" in anything that uses more than one thread as well as anytime youa re running more than one program.  Unfortunately i7 alone doesn't tell you taht much - youw ould actually need the model numbers of the processor.  For example a 7th generation dual core i7 would beat say a 2nd generation quad core i7 of similar processor speed.  But in general, assuming the two computers are within a model year or two, the quad core one will be faster.
